In April 1980, armed gunmen stormed the Iranian Embassy in Princes Gate, London and took all inside hostage. Over the next six days a tense standoff took place, all the while a group of highly trained soldiers from the SAS prepared for a raid the world had never seen.Written by
When the caretaker is looking at the model, he is escorted by a Sergeant with a full face bushy beard. A Pioneer Sergeant is the only position within the British Army allowed to have a beard.

3/19/18. A docudrama of the 1980 Siege of London's Iranian Embassy by terrorists, taking everyone inside as hostages. When the frustrated terrorists felt like they weren't getting the response they wanted from the British government, they made the mistake of killing a hostage and tossing the body out of the embassy. The British government brought in the SAS (Special Air Service) to extract the rest of the hostages. And, SAS did just that will minimal collateral damage. This set the tone for Britain's response to any terrorist attack since then. A suspenseful movie worth watching and cathartic for anyone who has ever felt terrorists have taken away the peace of mind we expect in a civilized world.
