Prince Harry: Front­line Afghanistan

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Satur­day, 9.25pm, BBC Knowl­edge This doc­u­men­tary was made in 2008 but it’s still in­ter­est­ing to see how a young royal copes in a war zone. It can’t be easy, es­pe­cially when you know the en­emy has put a price on your head and your peers are scru­ti­n­is­ing ev­ery move you make. Aged 24, Harry spent two months in Afghanistan. Back home, he trained as an Apache he­li­copter pilot and re­turned to Afghanistan last year. In this doc­u­men­tary, made with the bless­ing of Bri­tain’s Min­istry of De­fence, Prince Harry says he’d rather be known as Cap­tain Wales.
