Hello and happy New Year.

I recently made some documentaries about the experiences of British tank crews during World War II and in particular a group of men who fought all the way through that terrible conflict - the "tankies" from The Fifth Royal Tank Regiment, also known as the Filthy Fifth.

The first episode aired on Sunday 6 January, but if you are based here in the UK you can still watch it on the BBC iPlayer by clicking here.

The second part will be broadcast on Sunday 13 January 2013 at 9pm on BBC Two.
