This barely 90 minutes long TV play about Iron Lady and her lieutenants in time of Falklands War is an absolutely extraordinary thing, more tense and dramatic than most action or SF mega-productions! I loved every minute of it and I count it as one of the ABSOLUTELY BEST films about recent history I ever saw.
This film shows, I believe, quite faithfully the events as seen by the Prime Minister and her ministers - the fighting is not shown, except in the news, on the TV screens and sometimes we can read the dispatches and hear the radio communications. The play begins before Argentinian invasion, when first concerns are raised - and from that moment the tension rises and rises, all the way until the last exchange in the Parliament, immediately after Argentinian capitulation.
This play was supposed initially to air in 1986, but because it was showing Margaret Thatcher in a sympathetic light, BBC management (completely dominated by far-left) censored and shelved it - instead, films and plays criticising the war and the Prime Minister were produced... This censorship lasted for sixteen long years! The play finally aired in 2002, only after a campaign of protests...
It is an absolutely REMARKABLE thing, which I recommend with all my heart! A thing to buy, watch, keep and re-watch! ENJOY!
