From the producer of the BAFTA-winning Murder Detectives comes this gritty series revealing a hidden world of elite military training. Unprecedented access, with a fully embedded crew, takes us deep into the UK's renowned paratroop regiment for a no-holds-barred account of a frequently unforgiving life. We follow all stages of a para's military career, from novices embarking on the brutal initiation to continued training for officers, with personal insights and honest, character-driven stories creating a compelling narrative. Shot across a year in the UK, USA and Latvia, and mixing stunning fixed rig camera and drone footage with interviews and classic reportage, The Paras: Men of War provides a rare look at an extraordinary regiment who train to be first on the frontlines during deadly conflicts.
