Peter Kosminsky

More4's week-long season of films celebrating the work of award-winning writer and director Peter Kosminsky, concludes tonight with a rare chance to see Warriors.

Made for BBC1, winner of Best Drama Serial Bafta and starring Damian Lewis, Matthew Macfadyen and Ioan Gruffudd (pictured), Warriors traces the lives of young soldiers on a peacekeeping mission in Bosnia. On returning home, they find it impossible to readjust to civilian life in the UK.

During Europe's most bloody conflict for 50 years, a Battalion of the British Army, never defeated in battle, are forced to stand and watch the destruction of innocent communities, their hands tied by a UN mandate forbidding direct intervention. Based on extensive research into real events but with a cast of fictional characters, Warriors tells the story of Central Bosnia in the winter of 1992-93. British soldiers, trained for combat and equipped with Warrior armoured vehicles, are employed by the UN to escort aid into an enclave cut off by the Bosnian Serb advance.

The soldiers arrive full of confidence, certain that the experience will not touch them. Warriors is the story of how they become involved, physically and emotionally - and how they end up risking their lives in someone else's war. It is a film about the changing face of soldiering and about the perils of attempting to keep the peace in an unsafe world.
