It was called 'Operation Chariot' and produced five VCs, 78 other medals and 51 mentions in dispatches, between 611 men. Winston Churchill recognised it as one of the key successes of the war - and an act of almost incredible courage by 600 sailors and commandos.
At midnight on 27 March 1942 a force of Royal Navy and Commandos sailed up the River Loire, under heavy fire. Their objective - to destroy the giant Normandie dock at St Nazaire, prospective Atlantic base for the battleship Tirpitz. Against incredible odds, the dock was destroyed. But so was most of the attacking fleet.
The story is written and told by one of the survivors, former commando captain Michael Burn, MC, who finished the war in Colditz.

A comedy in six parts by ALEX SHEARER
1: Malcom is getting ready for Security Patrol, and his half-brother Sheldon accuses him of only doing the job because he likes getting dressed up in uniforms.
While Malcom is on patrol he meets his friend Fraser who is a policeman, and shows enthusiasm for joining the force.
The brothers arrange their mother's burial with The Rev Colt, who is rather taken aback with the plans made by Sheldon. And
Malcom is concerned when he hears Sheldon's ideas for their home - a roots and culture club with bands etc. starring

Jeremy Cherfas lifts the lid on some of the problems of breeding exotic animals - and shows how science is an investment against species being left out in the cold! Photography JIM SAUNDERS Sound ROGER LONG
