Philip Palmer's drama series, 'Red and Blue', focuses on Bradley Shoreham (Tim Woodward). After leaving the British Army, Shoreham became a Consultant Subject Matter Expert. He spends his working life creating war games for training purposes. Fictional they may be but the higher the level of authenticity, the greater their value to the participants. And when governments are paying for training they expect a high return for their money. Set in 2012, the first drama sees Shoreham discover how quickly the politics of his virtual world can spill out into the real world.
