No.4 Gritty in Pink
A Private in the Falkland Islands Defense Force, Samantha Brownlee challenges the role of women in the military while setting her sights further afield. As a keen runner, the Falklands offer her a backdrop of stunning natural beauty and an opportunity for reflection about future aspirations and careers. By leaving the islands to train and study, Sam hopes to one day return as a more valuable asset to her community and the islands as a whole. After all, home is where the heart is.
*This episode was filmed one day before the 30th anniversary of the 1982 invasion of the Islands at a time of increased tension and security. We were the only crew granted inside access to the Falkland Islands Defense Force to help further tell Sam's unique story.
