Commando School: The Shock Of Capture - Ep 1 Of 8
Commando School: The Shock Of Capture - Ep 1 Of 8 
Commando School has unprecedented access to arguably the most arduous basic military training programme in the world, going behind the scenes at the Royal Marines' Commando Training Centre in Devon to document the experiences of Royal Marines in training as never before.

They say that the first two weeks of Royal Marine training are among the toughest of the whole 32 weeks. This first episode follows 56 new recruits through this so-called 'shock of capture'. The recruits spend these opening weeks living in a 60-bed dorm where their every waking hour is controlled by their drill instructor, Corporal 'Froggy' Chauffour.

Froggy is a Frenchman with a passion for discipline and high standards, all delivered with his trademark toughness and a glint of humour in his eye. Like rabbits in headlights, the recruits struggle to cope with the gruelling demands of their new way of life, toiling tirelessly to master the details, stay awake and even suppress giggles in the face of Froggy's wrath. Some question their decision to join up, while others have their career as a Marine cut short when it's barely begun. By the end they must all pass a final inspection on everything they've learned so far, which for this troop in particular looks like a tall order. (From the UK) (Factual Entertainment) M (N,L) CC
