Broadcast on The Guardian’s front page, this short documentary, executive produced by Chris Atkins (Dir. Taking Liberties, Starsuckers) delves deep into the murky recruitment practices of the MOD as they continue to hoover up recruits under the age of 18.
Britain remains one of the few countries to recruit children into their army. This film entwines the stories of two men, David Buck an ex-soldier recruited at 17 and now suffering from PTSD and Richard Pendleton an ex Ad-men, who worked on the Army’s campaigns targeting children and their parents.
