Journey to the Wild West in the sweeping, sensational epic drama Centennial and go undercover in the Uncut Special Edition of Who Dares Wins with a fold-out double-sided artwork poster by the legendary Graham Humphreys.
Decades before Ant Middleton screamed at super fit estate agents in Snowdonia, the SAS were relatively unknown. Until 1980’s Iranian Embassy Siege put them on the front page of every newspaper. Who Dares Wins is based on this Historical Event.
Synopsis: When an anti-nuclear group resorts to terror to secure their ends, it takes the SAS to deal with them…as only the SAS can. Lewis Collins plays Peter Skellen, an SAS Captain sent to join the terrorists who are led by Frankie Leith (Judy Davis). Skellen joins as an undercover agent as the terrorists attack the London residence of the American Secretary of State. Only the SAS can save the VIP hostages…because only they dare. (And because they are told to by their chain of command).
Soldiers from the SAS assisted in the production of the film but weren’t supposed to perform stunts for the SAS assault. When the crew had the scene set up with helicopters and stuntmen at the ready the SAS offered to do the scene instead which director Ian Sharp jumped at.
Centennial gives a captivating look at the intertwining lives of the brave men and women of the fictional American town of Centennial, Colorado that endured the growing pains of a nation on the rise. Follow the grand hopes, dreams, loves and adventures of generations of residents from their risky attempts to establish a settlement in 1795 through to the politics and power plays of the 20th century.
