Done this absolute true life thing too many times before.
MY first viewing of this film was on a night duty at Checkpoint Bravo in Berlin.
This was the entrance into Berlin from Checkpoint Alpha in Helmstedt (did duty there too!) via what we called The Corridor. Which was a long autobahn with no speed limits. YAY. Drove it. Scared myself stupid at over 100 miles an hour.
At Bravo there was a long desk. Us Brits (two) were at the beginning. Two US MP in the middle. Two French MP at the end of the desk.
Mick – my oppo – brought in a portable TV one night and we all watched.
Mick and I were laughing.
The US were sneering.
The French ignored us all :o)
