This documentary follows three amateur historians into the heart of the Libyan Sahara as they track the path of Kiwis in ‘T Patrol’, a unit of World War II’s legendary Long Range Desert Group. The LRDG braved extreme heat and desert conditions to launch surprise raids — in converted Chevrolets — deep behind enemy lines. In this excerpt the history hunters make their way to Murzuk, the scene of a raid on an Italian air base. It contains the only extant footage of the desert group in action, and surviving members of the patrol recall events and the LRDG’s ethos.

Composer

Bagnold came and talked to us and said to us we’re going to cross the sand sea. He just said we’re going to raid Murzuk and he thought we could do it without anyone knowing we’re there. Everything was a surprise. No-one expected to see us.
– Peter Garland, Long Range Desert Group veteran
