This 1978 TV drama series shows what the British Army was like at the time. It uses an almost documentary style to show what life is like for the soldiers and their families.
At the start of the series, lead character Sergeant 'Jacko' Jackson (Michael Billington) is commanding a section of the recce platoon attached to B Company, during a tour of Northern Ireland.
As an unusually honest programme about British Army life and 'The Troubles' in Northern Ireland in the 70s, 'Spearhead' was a worthwhile achievement for British Television.
Spearhead was made by Southern Television for the ITV Network.
