A preview of new ITV documentary series For The Paras: Men Of War, followed by a Q&A with key members of the production team.

This landmark series offers unprecedented access to the Parachute Regiment, exploring all aspects of this closed world which turns raw recruits into elite soldiers trained to kill.

The Paras: Men Of War provides a unique perspective and unflinching account of what it takes to make the grade, as well as providing an intimate insight into the characters of the young men and the officers charged with transforming them into battle ready paratroopers, who are the first in to any conflict. Only a few of those who join up will make it to the end.

The 3x60 series is commissioned for ITV by Tom Giles, and produced by Neil Grant (Executive Producer) and Nick Betts (Series Producer/Director) for Avanti.
