When Argentina pursued its long held territorial claims to the Falklands and South Georgia, it totally underestimated the strength of the British reaction. From the re-taking of South Georgia to "The Long Walk" culminating in the decisive battle at Part Stanley; the destruction caused by the Argentinian Skyhawk fighters with their Exocets in "Bomb Alley", to the British Harriers regaining air supremacy with their deadly Sidewinder missiles; the bombing of Port Stanley airstrip to the sinking of the Belgrano; this was a war in which one nuclear powered submarine held an entire navy at bay. Seamlessly documented on land and sea by frontline ITN footage the programme captures the crucial points of this forty-one day war and the bloody battle over this remote island.
