I see Zulu Dawn is on C5 this Saturday at 19:40

It will also be available in HD on C5 HD for those with cable or satellite

I watched part of an old 70`s film at the weekend on this channel and the HD didn`t remove the grainy elements but the rest of the film did look much clearer.

I hope HD improves ZD as I always enjoy watching this film "Warts and all"

An interesting posting on the forum on the C5 website following the last showing of ZD

"I wonder why Burt Lancaster played Colonel Durnford as an Irishman. He was stationed in Ireland but was very much an English Gentleman. He was my 5th cousin"

I like most American actors an Irish accent was the closest he could achieve. The quality of British actors shows in American series 'Homeland' with Damian Lewis (old Etonian) and CIA boss played by David Harewood MBE. Remember 'Zulu Dawn' is only entertainment - a long way from the reality - was Chelmsford like Peter O'Toole?
