Description
AD20120528By Adrian Bean. To mark the 30th anniversary of the Battle of Goose Green, this drama-documentary looks at the events of the 28th - 29th May 1982 from the Argentinian perspective. The drama tells the story of two fictional Argentine conscripts.
Luis is looking forward to graduating and becoming a famous writer. Diego is praying for a swift Argentine victory (in the forthcoming World Cup). Neither chose to live under a military dictatorship. Nor did they choose to become soldiers. And they certainly didn't choose to take on the might of the British army for the sake of 'the Malvinas'.
Luis.... Thomas Brodie-Sangster
Diego.... Michael Socha
Sergeant Hernandez.... Alun Raglan
Piaggi.... Sam Dale
Narrator.... Eiry Thomas
Directed by James Robinson
A BBC Cymru Wales Production
