Description

Our story is told by those actually involved, the SAS, the hostages, the negotiators and with exclusive covert footage filmed at the time. In fact the footage we obtained to make this programme caused a stir in a certain building overlooking the River Thames in London. I won’t forget my secretary coming into the production office and telling me there was a phone call from a certain high ranking official in the Ministry of Defence; and that I needed to take the call as it involved  ‘a matter of national security’

‘Soldier I’ as he was labelled, to remain anonymous during the enquiry that followed the event, went into the embassy as part of the group that abseiled down the rear of the building. He often jokes that the damage caused to the balcony at the front on the Embassy in Prince’s Gate, wasn’t caused by the explosives. It was caused by the weight of the thousands of ‘Walter Mittys’ that have claimed they were on this operation. Only 40 men have that accolade, 40 of our most elite of the elite, soldiers. The storming of the Iranian Embassy and the moment the world’s media broadcast the iconic images of those black clad mysterious figures, put the SAS into world ‘celebrity’ status.
