Australian SAS: The Untold History Season 2 Parts 5,6 & 7 - 2 DVD set
The Australian SAS: the untold history reveals the secretive operations and unorthodox military culture that make the regiment unique.
Where other Special Forces documentaries portray the superficial veneer of soldiers in fast paced action, The Australian SAS: the untold history goes beyond the media clichés and Special Forces action stereotypes. The series reveals the real people, and the creative and strategic flair in war and peace that have won the Australian Special Air Service Regiment – "SAS" – its place in the top Special Forces units in the world.
Part 5 – “The Black and the Green”
When global terrorism mushrooms Australia turns to the SAS “Black” role of counter-terrorism (CT). This gives SAS a future. But the “Green War” roles of free falling, diving and motorised patrols are preserved and perfected.
Part 6 – “The Search for Meaning”
As the novelty of CT wears off SAS finds other outlets for its talents in training foreign forces in The Philippines and in small peace keeping in Somalia, Rwanda, Bougainville, Cambodia, the Solomons etc.
Part 7 – “The Postmodern Regiment”
After the collapse of the USSR SAS faces a challenge from within – it has lost much of its vital unconventionality. But as it rallies to become truly postmodern disaster intervenes when two CT Black Hawks collide and crash in flames.
