Thirty years on from the Falklands War we look back at the conflict, in which more than two hundred British servicemen died. It cost almost 700 Argentinian lives.
On April 2 1982, without warning, Argentina invaded the Falkland Islands and claimed them as their own. It followed more than a century of dispute over the tiny British outpost. A Task Force was sent to the South Atlantic to reclaim the islands and a brief, but very bitter war followed.
For those who served, the memories are still very much alive. This week on Calendar, we have three special reports on the conflict.
