Our War

The CoP Talk is a special edition of the CoP Show podcast recorded in front of a studio audience.

The BBC Academy's Donna Taberer welcomes Colin Barr, executive producer of BBC Three’s Our War and John Douglas, producer/director of episode two, to discuss how they set about bringing the series to the screen.

"Seeing those young guys sitting there, looking down the lens doing those interviews, it felt very weighty and important." – John Douglas

Our War tells the story of the ten year war in Afghanistan through the eyes of the soldiers who have been fighting in it. Much of the footage was shot by the soldiers themselves, and this was blended with intimate interviews. Colin and John talk about the many challenges involved in making the series.
