Chris Terrill (A. 1965-70)'s new documentary: "War Torn Warriors"
Tuesday, 22 December 2009

Chris' new documentary, "War Torn Warriors" starts on December 22nd in Sky1- A group of Britain’s bravest heroes find themselves on the front line of an entirely different battle in this two-part special. An inspiring documentary, War Torn chronicles the experiences of injured British service personnel as they embark on the journey of a lifetime, scaling the Everest region of the Himalayas.

The 80-man Khumbu Challenge expedition recreates a military environment and is part of a five-year initiative to help rehabilitate members of the Royal Navy and Royal Marines. Drawing on their courage, these men are determined to overcome their individual adversities, whether it’s the loss of limbs, a facial disfigurement or mental trauma. And although not everyone will complete this arduous task, the solidarity between this band of brothers is awe inspiring.

Their stories also provide insight into the often overlooked issue of what happens when military men, who have experienced indescribable horrors in Afghanistan and Iraq, return to civilian life. War Torn focuses on how these individuals recover from their wounds, be they appalling physical injuries or emotional scars.
