The Big Battalions (UK)

A huge story, set in the UK, Israel and Ethiopia, centred on religious faith - its value and its dangers. Based on an idea from the producer (whose previous large scale project was the TV drama TRAFFIK) Hugh embarked on extensive research to create a complex interlocking drama. In the light of “9/11″ and all that has followed, this can be seen as a prophetic work.
