In 2014, Forces TV filmed a series entitled ‘PARA Platoon: Earning the Maroon Beret’ which gave people the chance to have a look at what it takes to become a Paratrooper by following recruits through training.
The series, which was filmed at PARA Coy based at Catterick Garrison, has been short listed for the “Best Documentary” award in this year’s EVCOM Screen Awards. The EVCOM Screen Awards are recognised as the premier mark of excellence for effective business, television, film, video and digital media. Winning an EVCOM Screen Award brings with it national and international recognition and there is no higher accolade for creativity, originality, production expertise and sheer effectiveness in communication.
The winner’s will be announced at a dinner on 27th March but in the meantime, if you missed it the first time round, check out PARA Platoon here.
