A Foreign Field  (DVD)
Originally broadcast on BBC One in 1993, A Foreign Field tells the story of two World War Two veterans who return to the battle fields where they fought to visit the grave of a friend. During their visit they discover much more, re-opening many old wounds. Written by Roy Clarke (Last of the Summer Wine). DVD extras include D-Day facts, subtitles and a picture gallery
Five decades after blood flowed freely on its shores, Normandy is revisited by a handful of nostalgic World War Two veterans (Alec Guinness, Leo McKern, and John Randolph). It isn't long before the men begin to reopen old wounds as they explore the battlefield that shaped their lives. Two of the men search for an old flame (Jeanne Moreau) and, in their quest, find much more. A nostalgic, often comic, tale about loss and love.
