Channel 4 has commissioned Wonderhood Studios to produce a three-part landmark documentary series.

Evacuation tells the untold, inside story of the British military campaign to evacuate Kabul airport in 2021, through raw, intimate, never-heard-before testimony from the British servicemen and women who found themselves at the epicentre of an unfolding crisis as the Taliban closed in.

With top-to-toe access to the British military, and never-seen-before MOD footage shot by combat camera teams and personal footage, Evacuation reveals how Operation Pitting became Britain’s biggest airlift since WW2 and an incredibly complex and perilous military operation.

This series goes beyond the headlines and parliamentary debates of the time, focusing instead on the personal stories of the British servicemen and women who found themselves dealing with a humanitarian crisis on a scale they’d never experienced before.

Some 15,000 British nationals and eligible Afghans were flown out in a matter of days, but the human dilemmas on the ground for the armed forces sent to extract them play out like drama in this gripping series.

More details will be announced in due course.
