The Privates DVD


It is November 3rd, 1960 as we follow the last intake of men into National Service at the tail end of conscription. The Cold War is at its height, but an old way of life is drawing to a close, and a new breed of young man is standing up for England, Rock and Roll and the right to think for himself... but they're in the wrong place. Gangsters, teddy boys, peaceniks, posh boys and one certifi able loose cannon are about to find themselves in Two Section, deafened, blinded, choked and disciplined into one tight fighting machine whether they like it or not. And like it they won't. From the food to the beds, from early rising to late watches, from shaven heads to itchy uniforms, they're here to be broken down and rebuilt by the army; but it soon becomes a contest as to which side will break first.

BBC drama series exploring the final days of conscription to the British National Service. It is 1960 and, though the Cold War has begun, the decision is taken to end mandatory conscription. There appears to be a recognition that times are changing and one of the final groups of recruits embody the break between the old world and the new. These men do not believe the best way to serve their country is to get up at dawn and dig foxholes; they would rather be enjoying rock and roll music and demonstrating their belief in individual liberty. Patrick Baladi, Jack Fox and Marc Silcock star.
