Well now Gentlemen and Ladies, today marks the 50th anniversary of the premiere of ZULU -- at least in the UK (we've got to wait for several more months for the 50th anniversary of the US release). Happy Anniversary! I for one intend to acquire ASAP a gold plated Martini-Henry and a bayonet with some guts behind it. IMA perhaps?

It's a miracle! If it's a miracle, Colour-Sergeant, it's an I-can't-believe-I-survived-to-see-this-anniversary miracle. I first saw ZULU on the train to Marwar Junction, three summers and a thousand years ago. And You?

Alan,

I wouldn't bother.

I've seen it over a hundred times and it's rubbish.

On ITV on Friday 14 February there is a 30 minute programme - 'Time of Your Life' - at 8.00 pm - A tribute to Stanley Baker - the programme marks the 50th anniversary of the epic war film 'Zulu'. It looks as if the programme is only being broadcast on ITV Wales Region.
