I AM SOLDIER follows Mickey Tomlinson as he undertakes the toughest and most dangerous military training course known to man: SAS selection

I AM SOLDIER follows Mickey Tomlinson as he undertakes the toughest and most dangerous military training course known to man: SAS selection. The Special Air Service (SAS) is the United Kingdom’s most renowned special forces regiment. It is tasked with covert and overt missions in some of the most dangerous places on the planet. Mickey joined the army as a teenager with one objective: to join the SAS. However, a parachuting accident not only took Mickey down a different military career path from what he intended, it also left him with an inner conflict which has haunted him ever since. The only way he can deal with this is to face his fear by fulfilling his lifelong ambition and attempting SAS selection: ‘It is better to have tried and failed than to have failed to try.’ We follow Mickey through every gruelling stage of this selection that not only smashes him physically but also takes him beyond breaking point, both mentally and emotionally, from torturous tabs over the steepest mountains, to running for his life on “Escape and Evasion” missions and enduring the most horrific interrogation imaginable. And if this isn’t enough, the parachute jump test has to be passed. Mickey will need to survive all of this and conquer his crisis of confidence. Less than 10 percent of soldiers make it through the selection process, but it doesn’t end there. The only way you can really prove yourself is in combat. When the Counter Terrorism Squadron in the SAS are given authority to take charge of a deadly situation, we will watch as Mickey advances into conflict and see if he really does have what it takes to be a special forces operative. Many try to get into the SAS. Only the elite make it…
