They are the most recognised and photographed soldiers in the world. The public face of royal ceremony, resplendent in bearskins and scarlet tunics, they stand guard outside Britain's royal residences, famously Buckingham Palace. The Grenadier Guards are the most senior infantry regiment in the British Army. They are also one of the oldest and in 2006 celebrated their 350th anniversary. This DVD reveals the enormous amount of painstaking training and work that goes into a royal ceremony and the cruel reality of war as the Grenadiers go off to Afghanistan to fight for their country.
