OUR GIRL – great British TV military drama

These last few days I’ve been watching a great BBC program: Our Girl. Over five episodes it chronicles the evolution of Molly Dawes from a depressed, underachieving London East End young woman to a confident professional.

This happens over a year in which she goes through basic training, then training as a Combat Medical Technician. This is basically an emergency specialist who treats soldiers during the Golden Ten Minutes after they’ve fallen on the battlefield.

It continues over a year in Afghanistan while the British Army is handing over a military base to the Afghan Army. During that time she participates in exercises against the Taliban and learns, among other matters, who she is and what she can do.

It is available for streaming via Amazon Video, free if you have a Prime membership and moderately priced otherwise.
