This year, Chief Instructor Ant and his Directing Staff (DS) Foxy, Ollie and Billy are intensifying the course - adding twists and turns to the tasks in their quest to find men who are willing to drive their bodies and minds to the edge. This condensed version of SAS ‘Selection’ is the closest civilians can get to actual Special Forces training.

The DS and recruits will be based in a makeshift training camp inside a 150 year-old Kasbah in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains. The soaring temperatures, surrounding arid landscape, vast mountains, canyons and deserts all trigger memories of the environments where the DS have fought during recent wars. For them, this is the terrain of modern warfare.

As the recruits progress through the course, they will discover harsh truths about themselves whilst revealing and facing their fears. As they are stretched to their limits, the underlying issues of masculinity and men’s mental health emerge as strong overarching themes. For many taking part, this will be a life changing experience, but who amongst them has what it takes to make it through to the end?
