Do you think the BBC will ever make a 10 part miniseries on any British Unit? Band of Brothers and The Pacific and soon Masters of the Air have all delved deep into American lives during world war 2. And it is somewhat appropriate, in 1940 america had the smallest armed forces of all developed nations, by the war's end they became a military superpower. However, the British Empire was still a global force. Britain had 1/4 of the world population, and thus their army was also formidable. So why hasn't the BBC (which has made great programming like Doctor Who, Luther and Parade's End) haven't commission any 10 part miniseries? We (BBC) could focus on El Alamein and the desert Campaign against Rommel or Slim's 14th Army. We could focus on the 1st Parachute Brigade (Red Devils). If audiences felt like having something "modern, the British Commandos as well as SOE/SAS (i don't know much of the difference, except SAS were in the desert) ) and British Intelligence contributions with the French Resistance would also be able to tell some stories. So Why hasn't BBC commission any HBO style 10 part miniseries? Is it because of the Lack of books? It you could make it happen, which British/ANZAC/Commonwealth unit would you want to eulogized with an awesome 10 part miniseries?
