    Alex Holmes's bold drama documentary about a formative event in British history fluently mixed accounts from survivors of the legendary retreat from Dunkirk with powerful dramatic reconstructions resulting in a television mini series that won significant popular and critical acclaim and formed a fitting tribute to those who had fought.
