Information on 1990s British Army Documentary

#1
Looking for some information on a documentary that was on BBC1 or BBC2 in the 90s

The course was Commando selection or the mountain and artic warfare cadre of the marines

Memorable moments in documentary

Arctic Warfare
Sniping / Stalking - one of the students failed and fired his weapon into the ground in anger
Escape and Evasion - Students we set loose on the Brecon Beacons with just a green army over coat and minimal supplies

At one stage during they were brought into a barn and interrogated / and physically abused - this footage was not show

The seemed to be only one main instructor - think his name was John - he later retired from the BA and was see front facing abseiling down a cliff face. - when the doc maker catch up with him post retirement

This guy was seen jumping across a 2 metre gap with a 40 feet drop underneath - it later stated in the doc that he was charged for doing this without the use of safety harness.

Another select of the course is were students has to infiltrate a castle type structure - which they were able to do undetected.

All information on this doc greatly received

Would love to see this again.
