Actors Damian Lewis and Matthew Macfayden and director Peter Kosminsky come together to look back at the 1999 BBC drama Warriors and the roles that brought Lewis and Macfayden international success. The critically acclaimed series explored the role of British soldiers working as UN peacekeepers in Bosnia, confronting the moral realities of war and the horrors of ethnic cleansing.
The three share the stories behind the making of the programme, from casting process to location filming, and how cast and crew let off steam to help deal with the harrowing storylines. They also discuss the critical response, how the series stands up today and why, for all three of them, Warriors remains a career highlight even over two decades later.
Warriors (cultural programme) airs on BBC 4 on Wednesday, October 18, 2023 at 22:00 BST. Rebroadcast can be viewed here.
