when I was a kid in the 80ties - danish television aired a british tv-thriller/mini-series, that has haunted me ever since.
Unfortunately I can remember very little of the actual story-line, but here goes:
1. a semi official "agent" is hired to protect a VIP(?) visiting Britain from the middle east (Israel?).
2. In a scene one of the other bodyguards throws himself on a hand grenade to protect the VIP
3. There is a scene in an airport where the "hero" executes a wounded terrorist; the terrorist knows and accepts what is going to happen - and by himself puts his forehead to the hero's gun.
4. The series ends with the hero sitting in a bar. He looks at the news in the tv and learns that the VIP- in the plane on his way home - suffered a heart attack and died! The hero laughs franticly - and gets thrown out of the bar.
Ok - this is what I (think) I remember - but what is the title?
ps: sorry for my broken english :-)
