Taking Fire


Tuesdays from 21 February 9:30pm Channel 070

Taking Fire is the definitive collection of modern war stories, told by the men and women of the famous 101st airborne division; an elite division of the US Army trained for air assault operations. This series charts a year’s deployment defending one of the United States’ farthest flung outposts at the gateway to one of the deadliest places on earth: the mouth of the Taliban-held Korengal Valley in Northeast Afghanistan. Featuring real combat footage shot on helmet cameras and handy cams, this series plunges viewers into the heart of the action, giving a visceral experience not witnessed in news reports or traditional documentary portrayals of war.
