The recruits will face punishing weighted endurance marches, interrogation and sleep deprivation, each test more devious than the last. Any weaknesses will be exploited, any character flaws will be challenged, to find out which of the 22 recruits is the toughest in mind and body and can claim the title of winner of Special Forces Ultimate Hell Week.
EP 2 – JW GROM (Poland)
With 5 years as a paratrooper, 3 years in the Anti-Terrorist Unit and then 15 years in GROM, reaching the rank of Lieutenant and latterly Instructor – Rafal Nowakowski has a breadth of experience. The GROM operate in a similar way to the British SAS, choosing not to be confrontational in selection.
This fifteen-part series is hosted by Michael Buerk and sees him visit the former Royal Palace, Audley End, where he is joined by top chefs, including Paul Ainsworth and Anna Haugh, to cook up royal food past and present.
Michael explores the recollections of Mildred Nicholls, a servant who worked in the Royal Kitchens more than a hundred years ago. Mildred recorded the recipes and methods for dishes prepared for the King and Queen and now the Royal Archives has given BBC access to this fascinating record of royal food at the turn of the century. Inspired by the book and other royal food through history, Paul and Anna create favourite Royal recipes past and present whilst Michael adds riveting historical detail.
Michael Buerk said: “I've always wanted to eat like a king so Royal Recipes is a wonderful opportunity to do so. These days we are all fascinated by food and by royalty and these programmes are an irresistible combination of both.”
