The Promise (Channel 4)

Did anyone get the opportunity to catch The Promise on Channel 4 over the last 4 Sunday evenings? We were thoroughly engrossed by it; a great, well-written story, with some excellent performances all round. I'm not too sure on the historical accuracy of it (seemed a little anti-Israeli at times), but it was nevertheless damned good TV. It is out on DVD too, if anyone missed it.

I enjoyed the drama too, though the story line was hardly plausible. Fine acting and direction compensated for this however.

Maybe try and find a torrent on Piratebay or something.

I've always been of the opinion to never let plausibility get in the way of a good yarn

Streaming works (but watch out for malware).

As for the drama: I would have expected more sex from Channel 4...
