    i have a question about the new miniseries "The pacific". the new Band of brothers from tom hanks and steven spielberg.

    I have seen the first BoB alot :D it's still so cool to watch the episodes. The first time i saw it was on the BBC.

    my question: march 14 is the premiere of The Pacific on HBO channel. But in the netherlands we don't have HBO :( so i was wondering, will this serie shown on the BBC like the first BoB? i can't find anything about it on the BBC site :( Today i saw on a dutch tv channel they will send it out on april 9. but i hate dutch channels :p more commercials instead of programs ;) so any idea it this great serie is on BBC 1 or BBC 2?

    I hope so :rolleyes:

    Band of Brothers was epic. I have the box set, so got quite excited at the thought of another program like band of brothers. If it is as good, them, im sure the BBC will buy it for digital viewers. If not, just wait for the box set on DVD and buy that. Then you never have to worry about adverts at all.

    I love war program, games, machines etc. Woulnt want to be in one though. I just find it fascinating the things normal people do in the face of adversity. Also the amount of sacrifice for very little in return.

    There is a famous line from a pink floyd song ....." the Anziole bridge head, was held for the price of a few hundred ordinary lives" For a bridge! Think about that if you will.

    War, hugh, what is it good for...........

    There's rumour on one of the US blogs that BBC have acquired the rights for Pacific but they're bound to show it 12 months after sky by contract. Wait and see I suppose. Either way I can't wait. It had supposed to tie into a film coming out soon but I think that's idol speculation.

    I think that is only available to people in the US. I remember trying to watch Lost and didn't get very far.
