THURS­DAY

Midweek Sport - - TV GUIDE -

THE na­tion’s young­sters are gen­er­ally looked on as feral, hoody-wear­ing ter­rors, lurk­ing in shop door­ways ready to knife you for the price of a Twix.

But this doc­u­men­tary shows there are at least a few who have brav­ery, con­vic­tion and courage, as it fol­lows new army re­cruits at the start of their train­ing.

It’s im­pos­si­ble not feel ad­mi­ra­tion for these lads as they are turned from boys to men – es­pe­cially as they find out who is go­ing to be first to put their lives on the line in Afghanistan.

Even if you don’t agree with why they are fight­ing, you will agree that these boys are some­thing to be proud of.
