This programme contains some strong language

0:00:020:00:06

and scenes which some viewers may find upsetting

0:00:060:00:10

I had to get back the film, and I had to destroy it.

0:00:100:00:13

Did you tell your wife where you were going on Christmas day?

0:00:130:00:16

I don't want a baby.

0:00:170:00:19

I don't want two babies.

0:00:190:00:21

The boy?

0:00:210:00:22

SHE SPEAKS IN OWN LANGUAGE

0:00:220:00:23

They've taken the boy.

0:00:230:00:24

I think the NLF took Malik to force Yusra.

0:00:250:00:27

This suggests you're wrong about that.

0:00:270:00:29

Have you got it? Do you know where he is?

0:00:290:00:30

You have to move fast.

0:00:300:00:32

This is your one chance.

0:00:320:00:33

Joe, I think it's George. We've got him. George!

0:00:330:00:36

-George, come on!

-Hey!

0:00:380:00:39

George!

0:00:400:00:41

We're going to get you to a hospital, but you bloody well stay with me, OK? Do you hear?

0:00:460:00:50

Breathe, breathe, come on!

0:00:560:00:58

ED GASPS

0:00:580:00:59

-SHOUTS:

-Help!

0:00:590:01:01

ED GASPS

0:01:030:01:06

Why can't he breathe?

0:01:110:01:12

Collapsed lung. His chest cavity is full of air so his lung can't reinflate.

0:01:120:01:16

-This way!

-We need to go.

-This way!

-Go!

0:01:160:01:19

You stay with us, OK? Jesus Christ! You stay with us, damn it!

0:01:190:01:24

Damn it!

0:01:250:01:26

Take me to the hospital now!

0:01:310:01:33

They're all out, ma'am, looking for George - the whole unit.

0:01:330:01:36

It's just me.

0:01:360:01:37

So you drive me. What's the bloody problem, Orchover?

0:01:370:01:42

An officer's wife has to be...

0:01:420:01:44

What? What?

0:01:440:01:46

Protected, ma'am. Someone needs to ride shotgun.

0:01:460:01:48

I can't drive you and keep you safe at the same time.

0:01:480:01:51

-Well, give me your gun.

-Ma'am?

0:01:520:01:54

Give me your stupid gun and I'll protect myself.

0:01:540:01:58

I don't think I...

0:01:580:01:59

My husband has been shot! He needs me there.

0:01:590:02:02

Christ, has the Army shut your brain down, Corporal?

0:02:020:02:05

Is he dying?

0:02:170:02:18

-I don't know.

-Don't lie to me.

0:02:190:02:21

I really don't know, ma'am.

0:02:210:02:23

Let's go.

0:02:250:02:26

SHE SIGHS

0:03:540:03:55

Ed was close.

0:04:040:04:05

He nearly made it. He was moments away from rescuing George.

0:04:090:04:12

Your husband is a hero.

0:04:160:04:18

Aden - where East meets West.

0:04:250:04:27

Vital as an oil refinery, as well as a Gulf trade route.

0:04:290:04:32

The beach here at Aden is lovely.

0:04:340:04:36

The sand is warm,

0:04:360:04:37

and the sharks are not always hungry.

0:04:370:04:40

The occasional outbreaks of violence are

0:04:460:04:49

caused by what are officially called dissident tribesmen.

0:04:490:04:52

As long as there's trouble, there must be troops.

0:04:540:04:57

The Queen has full confidence in Aden's future,

0:04:580:05:01

describing it as the perfect example of colonial rule.

0:05:010:05:05

What's the pressure doing?

0:05:120:05:13

MUFFLED TALKING

0:05:130:05:16

ED GASPS

0:05:160:05:20

Hold him! Hold him down!

0:05:200:05:21

ED GASPS

0:05:220:05:25

CAR ENGINE RUMBLING

0:05:420:05:44

What did she think about you?

0:06:240:06:27

What's that?

0:06:270:06:28

Yusra. You were head over heels. What about her?

0:06:280:06:32

You wouldn't understand.

0:06:320:06:33

Ah. The love that passeth all understanding, eh?

0:06:330:06:36

Your understanding, anyway.

0:06:380:06:39

Has anyone heard from my husband?

0:06:420:06:44

No, ma'am.

0:06:450:06:47

Still at the hospital, ma'am.

0:06:470:06:49

What are you doing?

0:06:540:06:55

The Royal Scots had a grenade lobbed into the Land Rover.

0:06:590:07:02

What happened?

0:07:020:07:04

It got stuck under a seat.

0:07:050:07:06

Why do they want to do this to us?

0:07:120:07:14

Don't know, ma'am.

0:07:160:07:17

But we should know, shouldn't we?

0:07:180:07:19

The NLF, we think, delivered the film this morning.

0:07:290:07:34

-I want to see it.

-I don't think that's a good idea.

0:07:350:07:37

I have a right to see what they did to my son.

0:07:390:07:43

-Mary...

-Don't you dare patronise me.

0:07:430:07:45

He's my son. You will take me to see this film, and you will do it now.

0:07:470:07:53

-Again.

-Mary.

0:08:480:08:50

Play it again.

0:08:500:08:51

The parting! In his hair.

0:09:060:09:09

What?

0:09:100:09:11

Yusra does that. She's sending us a message, Harry.

0:09:110:09:15

She's with him, and she's helping him.

0:09:170:09:20

I knew it.

0:09:240:09:25

NLF FIGHTERS SPEAK IN OWN LANGUAGE

NLF FIGHTER SPEAKS IN OWN LANGUAGE

NLF FIGHTER SPEAKS IN OWN LANGUAGE

0:10:040:10:06

MALIK SPEAKS IN OWN LANGUAGE

0:10:090:10:11

Malik! Malik!

0:10:120:10:14

SHE SPEAKS IN OWN LANGUAGE

0:10:140:10:15

Malik!

0:10:170:10:18

SHE SPEAKS IN OWN LANGUAGE

0:10:180:10:23

You go on, darling. I'll catch you up.

0:10:320:10:34

What monsters these people are. What do they want?

0:10:470:10:51

Kadir, in exchange for George.

0:10:530:10:56

They're offering a swap, Harry.

0:10:570:10:59

There's a rule.

0:11:070:11:08

We have a rule.

0:11:120:11:13

We don't talk to terrorists.

0:11:170:11:18

They have to know where they stand, these people.

0:11:200:11:24

TILBROOK CLEARS HIS THROAT

0:11:260:11:27

There's one more thing.

0:11:290:11:30

But I don't quite know how to put this, Harry.

0:11:330:11:36

Then just say it.

0:11:360:11:37

Like with children?

0:12:200:12:21

Hm?

0:12:210:12:22

We let them get away with it once.

0:12:230:12:25

Mary, there's something Harvey didn't want you to know.

0:12:300:12:33

I'm afraid there's a deadline.

0:12:380:12:40

How long?

0:12:440:12:46

Eight hours.

0:12:490:12:50

Does Harvey Tilbrook have children?

0:13:070:13:09

Don't go.

0:13:530:13:54

Stay with me.

0:13:590:14:00

I'm here.

0:14:020:14:03

Joe saved your life.

0:14:240:14:26

Baxter?

0:15:090:15:10

Sir.

0:15:130:15:14

At 18:00 hours...

0:15:160:15:17

Sir.

0:15:190:15:21

At 18:00 hours,

0:15:210:15:22

I have it on good authority that the NLF will be ending my son's life.

0:15:220:15:26

-I want you to...

-We'll do everything we can, sir.

0:15:280:15:31

What's the point, Alec? What good could it do their cause?

0:15:390:15:42

What's in it for them?

0:15:420:15:45

They'll say that they made an offer and that, by refusing that offer,

0:15:450:15:49

they'll say that it was us who killed him, not them.

0:15:490:15:56

That's what they'll say, sir.

0:15:570:15:59

-You've always been honest with me, Baxter.

-Yes, sir.

0:16:070:16:10

That's why I trust you. That's why I trust you.

0:16:100:16:13

Permission to carry on, sir?

0:16:200:16:23

Yes, yes, of course.

0:16:230:16:24

KNOCK ON DOOR

0:16:480:16:49

-Ma'am.

-Oh!

-I was looking for the CO.

0:16:540:16:58

Come in. Please.

0:16:590:17:00

Would you like some lemonade?

0:17:020:17:04

No, thank you, ma'am.

0:17:040:17:05

I was just making summer pudding - George's favourite.

0:17:060:17:10

Yes, ma'am.

0:17:100:17:11

SHE CHUCKLES

0:17:110:17:13

I wanted to say, um... Sorry, I know he's not dead, I just...

0:17:130:17:18

I just wanted to tell you that, um...

0:17:180:17:20

..he was such a good lad.

0:17:220:17:24

Sorry, I keep saying "was", like he's, um...

0:17:260:17:28

I shouldn't have come.

0:17:340:17:35

I'm so glad you did, Corporal Stoneham.

0:17:360:17:39

People have become frightened of me, because of what's happened, you see.

0:17:420:17:46

But not you.

0:17:470:17:48

And I'm very grateful. Thank you.

0:17:510:17:54

How's Lieutenant Laithwaite, sir?

0:18:150:18:16

He's a fighter, Sergeant. He wants, very badly, to live.

0:18:160:18:21

How did you get him back on your own, sir?

0:18:210:18:24

I just did.

0:18:240:18:25

Bloody hero, if you don't mind me saying, sir.

0:18:250:18:28

You don't think, do you? The training takes over.

0:18:280:18:31

So not brave, not a hero, just... being in the British Army.

0:18:320:18:37

Just doing your job.

0:18:390:18:40

And now that you've finished buttering me up,

0:18:430:18:44

why don't you tell me what it is you want?

0:18:440:18:46

It's the CO, sir. He's not himself.

0:18:510:18:53

That's hardly surprising.

0:18:550:18:56

Would you do me a favour, sir? Drop the English.

0:18:560:18:58

I'm sorry?

0:18:580:18:59

Keeping calm and carrying on - it's just posh folks' idea of virtue,

0:18:590:19:03

like cold showers and thrift.

0:19:030:19:05

But where I come from, it's all bollocks,

0:19:060:19:08

if you'll excuse the Glaswegian.

0:19:080:19:10

I'd walk through fire for that man. In fact, I have - more than once.

0:19:100:19:14

So please don't ever tell him I said this.

0:19:160:19:18

It would kill him if he knew.

0:19:180:19:20

You've lost trust in him.

0:19:210:19:22

He'll get it back.

0:19:270:19:28

Yes, sir. But we need a leader, sir - now.

0:19:280:19:31

I don't know if I can do this, Honor.

0:19:550:19:57

Joe!

0:19:570:19:58

Mm.

0:20:010:20:02

Joe?

0:20:280:20:29

My husband's tired.

0:20:390:20:41

He wants you to bring me to the hospital in his place.

0:20:410:20:43

AMBULANCE SIREN WAILS IN DISTANCE

0:20:540:21:02

Time to go home, Mrs Laithwaite.

0:21:030:21:05

I'll stay here, thank you.

0:21:060:21:08

You can't do that.

0:21:080:21:10

Why not? What will happen?

0:21:130:21:18

Is there a problem?

0:21:360:21:37

No.

0:21:380:21:39

Mrs Laithwaite, visiting hours...

0:21:390:21:41

Jesus Christ! Rules, rules, rules!

0:21:410:21:45

There's a reason why...

0:21:450:21:46

Yes! Everything put in a box.

0:21:460:21:49

Everything described and put in a fucking box

0:21:490:21:52

and made never to leave or else the world might end!

0:21:520:21:54

-You're getting needlessly...

-What?

0:21:540:21:57

I'm getting out of my box, and you can't stand it or understand it.

0:21:570:22:01

You're a pregnant woman. You don't know what you're saying.

0:22:010:22:04

You're the one making me have these babies!

0:22:040:22:06

What else is there, Mrs Laithwaite?

0:22:080:22:10

What exactly am I stopping you doing?

0:22:100:22:12

Is there anything more cowardly than a man asking questions

0:22:130:22:16

he already knows the answer to for the purpose of humiliating someone?

0:22:160:22:21

-What's the matter with you?

-Oh, yes!

0:22:210:22:23

There is something more cowardly - a man who avoids answering

0:22:230:22:26

a question he doesn't like by asking a question himself!

0:22:260:22:29

Here's my question, Mrs Laithwaite - what kind of wife,

0:22:290:22:32

with a man as brave as your husband in the condition

0:22:320:22:34

he's in, behaves this selfishly?

0:22:340:22:36

SHE LAUGHS

0:22:360:22:38

The character of my husband? Is that it?

0:22:380:22:43

What can a woman possibly complain about if her husband is a good egg?

0:22:430:22:46

And what's wrong with that?

0:22:490:22:50

SHOUTS: Because he's not me! Because I exist! Look! Here I am!

0:22:520:22:58

A human being, all by myself!

0:22:590:23:02

Alison?

0:23:030:23:04

Breathe deeply.

0:23:120:23:14

ALISON LAUGHS

0:23:140:23:17

Is that what your mother's book says?

0:23:170:23:19

How to deal with collapsed lungs and hysterical women?

0:23:190:23:22

No, it's just common sense.

0:23:230:23:25

Goodness me, how quickly you're growing up!

0:23:280:23:31

That's what everybody says, isn't it? Well done, she's crawling!

0:23:340:23:39

Her first word! She can walk!

0:23:390:23:42

Why are we so desperate for children to grow up?

0:23:420:23:46

All the prizes in life - coming of age, getting married...

0:23:480:23:54

..are all for getting older.

0:23:570:23:58

Well done on getting closer to death!

0:24:010:24:04

Do you remember hurting yourself?

0:24:070:24:09

What do you mean?

0:24:110:24:12

Falling over.

0:24:140:24:15

Wasn't it wonderful?

0:24:180:24:19

God, the shock of it!

0:24:210:24:24

The ground in your face!

0:24:240:24:26

Bam! BAM!

0:24:260:24:29

Knees, elbows.

0:24:290:24:30

When was the last time you gave your elbow a second thought?

0:24:300:24:34

The taste of fresh scab - good and salty and bloody.

0:24:340:24:40

I miss pain. How far away from childhood people go.

0:24:440:24:50

That's one of the things I love about you.

0:24:560:24:58

Sometimes, when I hear you laugh, I could scream with pleasure.

0:25:010:25:05

Don't grow up, Honor.

0:25:080:25:09

I'll die if you turn into one of them.

0:25:120:25:14

I have to.

0:25:170:25:18

I think I have to.

0:25:210:25:22

It's a driver escort job for you.

0:25:260:25:27

MARY SLICING BREAD

0:25:270:25:29

And can't one of the men...?

0:25:290:25:31

It has to be you.

0:25:310:25:32

But George is...

0:25:340:25:35

The deadline, sir.

0:25:380:25:39

This takes precedence. The order comes from high command.

0:25:400:25:43

-I'll take Armstrong and Baxter as my wingmen.

-No, no. Just you.

0:25:450:25:48

-Can I ask why?

-No.

0:25:510:25:52

Strictly need-to-know, Captain Martin, and hush-hush.

0:25:540:25:56

It must be connected to George, sir.

0:25:580:26:00

Sir.

0:26:050:26:06

PETER CRYING

0:26:160:26:20

What if George were a prince?

0:26:230:26:24

What?

0:26:260:26:27

What if Prince Charles had been kidnapped by terrorists,

0:26:270:26:31

and a swap was offered? They'd take it. They'd make the swap.

0:26:310:26:37

The thing that matters is the identity of the kidnap victim.

0:26:390:26:44

They don't think our son is important enough.

0:26:440:26:47

What do you want me to do?

0:26:500:26:52

Go and tell them, Harry.

0:26:560:26:57

At six o'clock, our son will be put to death.

0:26:580:27:01

He's our son. There's a rule.

0:27:020:27:07

It can be broken. If it's broken, our son will live.

0:27:070:27:11

I want you, for the first time in your life, to go and make a fuss.

0:27:110:27:19

That was base, ma'am.

0:27:220:27:23

Just to let you know, ma'am, your husband left an hour ago.

0:27:230:27:27

What? Where to?

0:27:270:27:28

He wouldn't say.

0:27:280:27:29

Er, Armstrong, would you mind taking me somewhere else?

0:27:430:27:46

Certainly, ma'am.

0:27:460:27:47

PHONE RINGS

0:27:510:27:53

Tilbrook here. He's landed.

0:27:530:27:54

The Gordon Hotel.

0:28:240:28:26

Sir.

0:28:260:28:27

George, do you have the...the...

0:29:030:29:05

No? OK.

0:29:070:29:09

OK. Wait. I'm going to the pharmacy. I won't be long.

Hello, I'm here to see Martha Franklin.

0:29:530:29:55

Room 271, madam.

0:30:030:30:05

Thank you.

0:30:210:30:22

Open!

0:30:220:30:23

800 words on the hemline of the miniskirt for The Times!

0:30:340:30:38

What can you say in 800 words?

0:30:400:30:44

Jean Shrimpton wore a mini-dress to Ascot and scared the horses?

0:30:440:30:49

Mary Quant did or didn't invent the damn thing?

0:30:490:30:51

There's blood on your blouse.

0:30:510:30:53

Where do you stand on how far below the panty line

0:30:540:30:57

the mini can safely go?

0:30:570:30:59

I don't know.

0:31:020:31:03

I don't like my knees.

0:31:030:31:04

The blood?

0:31:080:31:09

A man.

0:31:100:31:11

A protestor, I don't know.

0:31:110:31:13

So?

0:31:180:31:19

How can I help?

0:31:210:31:22

You don't know me?

0:31:230:31:25

No.

0:31:250:31:26

I'm Captain Martin's wife.

0:31:280:31:30

Do you do that at home?

0:31:350:31:37

Sorry?

0:31:370:31:38

Do you, "Pass the sugar, Captain Martin?"

0:31:380:31:40

-"Oh, certainly, Mrs Martin."

-What's the matter?

0:31:400:31:42

Huh?

0:31:420:31:44

It feels like you're...

0:31:440:31:46

You're jumping all over me. You don't know anything about me.

0:31:460:31:49

I expect it's the same for Joe, isn't it, when he's here?

0:31:510:31:54

So this is not a...

0:31:550:31:57

..friendly visit.

0:31:580:31:59

I don't know. I...

0:32:000:32:02

I love him.

0:32:020:32:03

You do, don't you?

0:32:050:32:06

Have you ever been in love?

0:32:090:32:11

Often. All the time.

0:32:110:32:13

No.

0:32:160:32:17

Men love you.

0:32:200:32:21

Often, all the time.

0:32:230:32:24

I suppose they do.

0:32:270:32:28

Is that enough?

0:32:300:32:31

I don't suppose it is.

0:32:330:32:34

SHE WHISPERS: How can they help themselves?

0:32:360:32:38

He hasn't.

0:32:430:32:45

Joe, Captain Martin, has never...

0:32:450:32:48

You wouldn't...

0:32:480:32:50

You wouldn't lie to me?

0:32:500:32:52

How could anyone lie to you?

0:32:530:32:55

How old are you?

0:33:000:33:01

21.

0:33:030:33:04

How old are you?

0:33:070:33:09

Oh. Hello, Harvey. What are you doing here?

0:33:160:33:20

I'm having a chin-wag with a journalist.

0:33:200:33:22

Setting her straight on a few things.

0:33:220:33:25

American journalist, Martha Franklin.

0:33:250:33:28

Just now?

0:33:280:33:30

Yes. I wouldn't go near her, if I was you. She does bad things.

0:33:300:33:34

And why are you here, Honour Martin? All on your own here?

0:33:340:33:38

I... We didn't have a honeymoon,

0:33:380:33:40

so I thought we could spend a night in The Gordon.

0:33:400:33:42

A bit dear.

0:33:430:33:45

Yes.

0:33:450:33:46

Yes, I didn't know.

0:33:460:33:47

I do now.

0:35:180:35:20

Royal Military Police.

0:35:210:35:23

What was all that about?

0:35:400:35:42

Pharmacist in Crater on the Aden Road. Bit odd, actually.

0:35:420:35:46

Why?

0:35:460:35:47

Does George Markham want a second inhaler?

0:35:490:35:51

What?

0:35:540:35:55

What?

0:35:550:35:56

What?

0:35:580:35:59

Look, I think it's where they are. I think she

0:36:160:36:19

left this at the pharmacy so we know where their location is.

0:36:190:36:23

It could be. We need to be careful.

0:36:230:36:24

It could be a trap.

0:36:260:36:28

But it's not. It's not, it's Yusra. She's not like that.

0:36:280:36:30

-She loves George.

-I'm not sure we can take that risk, Armstrong.

0:36:300:36:33

-Captain Martin?

-Sir?

0:36:330:36:35

I've another driving job for you, I'm afraid.

0:36:350:36:37

-But keep it low key, would you?

-Who is it, sir?

0:36:370:36:39

It's...

0:36:390:36:40

It's Kadir.

0:36:420:36:43

Starfish.

0:36:440:36:45

You're to take him to a secure location on the coast.

0:36:450:36:49

Intelligence suggests there may be a rescue attempt,

0:36:490:36:51

so to be safe, take a man with you.

0:36:510:36:53

Sir.

0:36:550:36:56

He treats us like we're his guests.

0:37:480:37:50

Two more seconds of him looking at me like that,

0:37:520:37:55

I'd have broke his neck.

0:37:550:37:56

Timing, one of his many qualities.

0:37:560:37:59

You sound like you admire him.

0:38:010:38:02

Yes, I do.

0:38:030:38:04

I hate him with all my heart.

0:38:060:38:07

But I recognise a worthy adversary, Harry.

0:38:070:38:09

If I didn't, I wouldn't have my job.

0:38:090:38:11

Mary was wondering whether you had any children.

0:38:150:38:18

I realised, I didn't know.

0:38:180:38:21

One of each.

0:38:210:38:23

-Have they been out?

-Their mother doesn't like the heat.

0:38:230:38:26

I want you to re-consider, Harvey.

0:38:360:38:38

Course you do.

0:38:380:38:39

I was a year older than George when I went to boarding school.

0:38:420:38:46

My father dropped me off on the first day.

0:38:490:38:52

Seven years old.

0:38:520:38:53

A week later, towards the end of the day, he came back for a visit.

0:38:550:38:58

And they'd already started beating out of me

0:39:000:39:03

whatever it is they saw they didn't like.

0:39:030:39:05

When he came back that day, I was playing football.

0:39:070:39:11

Just a kick-about.

0:39:120:39:14

He stood there and watched.

0:39:140:39:16

I wanted my father to go away.

0:39:190:39:20

I couldn't bear the thought of having to go through it all again.

0:39:240:39:27

I didn't want to stop playing the game.

0:39:270:39:29

I was rejecting him...

0:39:310:39:33

..so I could get on with forgetting about him.

0:39:360:39:38

That was the lesson.

0:39:380:39:39

-You had to grow up fast.

-Yeah.

0:39:390:39:41

But I promised myself, when George was born...

0:39:450:39:51

I've never told anyone this, not even Mary...

0:39:550:39:58

..that I would never leave him...

0:40:000:40:03

..with that absolute and desolate feeling of being alone

0:40:050:40:10

in a place where nobody loves you.

0:40:100:40:12

And you're not.

0:40:120:40:14

As a father, you have done - are doing - everything you possibly can.

0:40:140:40:18

I respect that.

0:40:180:40:19

Which is why it's right that you came to see me.

0:40:210:40:23

And it's why it's the hardest thing I've ever done...

0:40:250:40:28

..in my life...

0:40:300:40:31

..to say no to you.

0:40:330:40:35

Harvey, I can't go back to Mary and tell her I've failed.

0:40:350:40:38

Yes, you can.

0:40:380:40:39

Yes, you will.

0:40:430:40:44

It's straight on for the coast, sir.

0:41:160:41:18

And left for Al-Hinna Farmhouse.

0:41:200:41:23

George.

0:41:240:41:25

I don't want you to have anything to do with this, Armstrong.

0:42:050:42:08

Sir, I...

0:42:090:42:10

-Nobody need know you were involved in any way.

-I'm coming with you.

0:42:100:42:13

-The penalty for allowing...

-You won't pull this off without me.

0:42:170:42:21

With two of us, we stand half a chance.

0:42:210:42:22

It's not a job for one man.

0:42:220:42:23

You love her, don't you?

0:42:260:42:28

Sir, yes, sir.

0:42:330:42:34

He's not here.

0:43:170:43:19

Kadir left an hour ago.

0:43:190:43:20

If he's not with you, where the hell is he?

0:43:210:43:23

Because if he's not, we have nothing to exchange for George.

0:45:260:45:30

SHE SPEAKS OWN LANGUAGE

0:45:300:45:31

How did you know we were here?

0:45:390:45:41

Kadir told us.

0:45:480:45:49

He seems to know everything.

0:45:510:45:52

OK, OK.

0:46:080:46:09

One more thing.

0:46:100:46:11

Yusra comes with George.

0:46:140:46:16

No.

0:46:260:46:27

Please, take George. Leave me.

0:46:280:46:30

One woman and a child in exchange for your great leader.

0:46:300:46:34

Is he not worth this?

0:46:340:46:36

Tell them.

0:46:400:46:41

Tell them!

0:46:420:46:43

OK.

0:46:570:46:58

What is happening?

0:47:100:47:11

We're giving you back.

0:47:110:47:13

I see.

0:47:140:47:15

It doesn't matter.

0:47:200:47:21

Do you have my glasses?

0:47:220:47:23

It's OK.

Come on. Come on, George, come on.

0:49:360:49:39

Yes, yes, George.

You're going to have a baby.

Out of your vagina.

0:53:480:53:50

Joe, I don't know how we can ever thank you.

0:53:540:53:56

I let him go the first time.

0:53:560:53:58

I wasn't going to let it happen again.

0:53:580:54:00

Oh, let yourself be a hero, for God's sake, Joe.

0:54:000:54:03

We're heroes, Joe.

0:54:030:54:05

Yes. Now, go and say thank you to Lieutenant Laithwaite.

0:54:050:54:09

Thank you.

0:54:130:54:15

Sir, can I have a word, please, about Yusra?

0:54:150:54:17

What do you suggest we do?

0:54:170:54:18

-Look after her.

-How?

0:54:180:54:20

Erm, protect her, summit...? Look, the NLF know what she did.

0:54:210:54:25

-Does she have family?

-Yeah.

0:54:250:54:28

And do they know where they live?

0:54:280:54:30

Yes, sir.

0:54:300:54:31

Well, we can't really bring the whole family

0:54:310:54:34

into our care now, can we? Excuse me.

0:54:340:54:37

Well, then they'll kill them.

from lawful custody of a prisoner of war.

0:56:300:56:33

He saved my life. You can't do that. He's a hero.

0:56:330:56:36

I'll explain.

0:56:360:56:37

I'll explain everything and then everything will be OK.

Disobeying an order can be the right thing.

It's taken.

Are you talking to them?

There's nothing to worry about.

0:57:350:57:36

-Where are you going?

-The NLF will kill Yusra for what she did.

0:57:360:57:39

I'm not having that.

0:57:390:57:40

Where is she?!

0:57:400:57:42

The NLF demand a swap. Alison watches over Ed, conflicted about their marriage. Honor confronts Martha. Yusra gets a coded message to Armstrong. Joe disobeys orders.
