Torrent description

Saturday Play: Last Night, Another Soldier 01-08-2009

Last Night, Another Soldier..., written by Andy McNab, is based on the lives of four soldiers and told mainly from the perspective of 18-year-old new-boy David Briggs.

Briggsy is just three weeks into his first posting in Afghanistan as part of an eight-man rifle section.

His battalion is already half-way through their six-month tour in Helmand Province and, to date, has suffered 13 casualties. Their key mission is to take control of the highly valuable poppy fields. The last few months have taken their toll and the young men are in terrible state – with scruffy beards, peeling noses and lips burnt by the Afghan sun. In addition, the Taliban are proving highly competent adversaries. However, despite the hardships, the men are enjoying their time. These lads now have experience, alongside their skills, and are fast becoming the best soldiers the army has ever had.

When Briggsy is injured during his first contact with the Taliban, he struggles to persuade Sergeant Mackenzie that he is physically and mentally ready to go back into the field. Through his encounters with seasoned medic Emma Rankin and his discussions with the soldiers in his rifle section, Briggsy begins to understand something of the lasting effects of war. This knowledge leads him to attempt to contact his absent father for the first time.

The story cuts between high-octane battle scenes and the everyday reality of life on a British Army Forward Operating Base.


From The Telegraph

Andy McNab, bestselling author and former SAS man, adds this new radio play to his canon. It’s about the lives of four soldiers serving in a rifle section in Helmand Province and its told through the youngest of them, Briggsy (Russell Tovey), 18 years old, the new recruit who joined them three weeks ago. Their battalion has suffered 13 casualties, the conditions have taken their toll, the Taliban are proving accomplished adversaries. These men all love soldiering and when Briggsy is injured he’s eager to go back into the field. What he learns about while he’s waiting are some of the effects of war.
