Sir David Jason, Dame Maggie Smith and Patrick Malahide star in this heart-wrenching WWI story based on a very real and mysterious event. The 1/5th (Territorial) Battalion of the Norfolk Regiment included men from the King's estate at Sandringham House and, during the Gallipoli campaign, the battalion incurred such catastrophically heavy losses that many myths sprung up about their fate. Did they all simply walk into the mist and disappear? Were they captured and perhaps executed? As this compelling drama shows, the mysterious fate of the Sandringhams - the 'lost company' - brought the true horrors of World War I to the heart of the establishment and to the British Royal Family itself.
