For years he's been battling the post traumatic after effects

:00:13.:00:15.

Today, the local community gave a huge boost to

:00:16.:00:22.

Roger Lewis' recovery, by re-uniting him

:00:23.:00:23.

A fundraising campaign has covered the cost of flying them

:00:24.:00:35.

halfway round the world, to be with their father

:00:36.:00:37.

Back together after 15 years, Roger left his daughters in Australia

:00:38.:00:42.

after marital break-up and mental health problems brought on

:00:43.:00:44.

by his experiences serving in Kosovo.

:00:45.:00:46.

My illness got worse and I was building up a dependency

:00:47.:00:49.

on alcohol and had got to the stage where

:00:50.:00:53.

things were really bad, I came back to the UK,

:00:54.:00:56.

a real hard decision, because I was balancing the

:00:57.:01:05.

well-being of my children with having me around,

:01:06.:01:08.

against my needs to get medical help.

:01:09.:01:11.

Roger's health means he is unable to fly, so his

:01:12.:01:13.

partner Amanda decided to get the girls to him instead, and grant

:01:14.:01:22.

crowdfunded their fair on the Gold Coast to the Isle of Wight.

:01:23.:01:25.

They met their youngest siblings for the first

:01:26.:01:27.

It's like a dream, it's really weird to see our dad, too, to walk

:01:28.:01:31.

We haven't used that word in 15 years.

:01:32.:01:35.

The girls say they don't care what happened in the

:01:36.:01:38.

I think we had a really long time been really, really angry.

:01:39.:01:41.

I don't know about you but it's got to

:01:42.:01:44.

the point where it was kind of like welcoming you going to have one dad,

:01:45.:01:47.

you have one biological dad and you're going to have him in your

:01:48.:01:50.

life or you're not going to have him in your life and I wanted him in my

:01:51.:01:54.

Roger says he turned a corner three years ago,

:01:55.:01:58.

when he got involved in the charity Combat Stress.

:01:59.:02:00.

They gave me the tools and understanding of

:02:01.:02:02.

what's going wrong, physically, and mentally come inside my body.

:02:03.:02:05.

That causes flashbacks, the hallucinations,

:02:06.:02:06.

The family have a lot of people to thank,

:02:07.:02:12.

and a lot to catch up on over the next three weeks.

:02:13.:02:24.

Police in Portsmouth have begun a murder investigation,

:02:25.:02:26.

:02:38.:02:39.

:02:40.:02:40.

The family of a man who went missing in July have been informed.

:02:41.:02:47.

An award-winning young film maker from Hungerford

:02:48.:02:51.

says he can compete with big movie studios,

:02:52.:02:53.

despite only having a tiny budget to work with.

:02:54.:02:55.

Drew Casson has used digital technology to craft his latest

:02:56.:02:59.

action film on a shoestring, and is also using the internet

:03:00.:03:01.

On top of that, he's drafted in a host of YouTube stars,

:03:02.:03:07.

to reach out to new audiences. James Ingham reports.

:03:08.:03:11.

The British military have issued a nationwide evacuation.

:03:12.:03:15.

Britain descends into an alien apocalypse.

:03:16.:03:18.

This is a familiar horror theme, but The Darkest Dawn is the work of

:03:19.:03:27.

a new generation, making films differently.

:03:28.:03:28.

Nobody's ever taught me how to hold a camera, frame a shot,

:03:29.:03:36.

how to make a plane look like it crashes on the computer, so I

:03:37.:03:39.

The society we live in today, with the technology that is

:03:40.:03:43.

available, and a lot of its free, the only

:03:44.:03:46.

available, and a lot of its free, the only thing you're limited

:03:47.:03:49.

The film's being produced by a small,

:03:50.:03:53.

independent company, with backing from the somewhat larger

:03:54.:03:55.

Pinewood also recognises that there was a whole generation of

:03:56.:04:01.

talent and not just a new generation of talent

:04:02.:04:06.

but a new generation of platform

:04:07.:04:08.

through which you can access the audiences.

:04:09.:04:09.

Hello, friends, welcome back to my channel.

:04:10.:04:11.

Some of the new audience may be fans of the

:04:12.:04:13.

YouTube stars in the cast, like Jerry Wallis, Mawaan Riswan
