Filming in Tunisia, March 2018

During March 2018, we commenced filming the story of the Irish Brigade’s journey from Algiers to Austria with the first two parts covering the Tunisian campaign from November 1942 to May 1943.

Over the course of seven days we travelled to the battlefield areas north of Bou Arada and northwest of Medjez-el-Bab and the coastal ports of Sousse and Hammamet.
