Occupation - BBC Ireland Television Miniseries (Aired June 2009)

Occupation is a BAFTA award winning three-part hour-long TV mini series that aired on the BBC in June 2009. It stars James Nesbitt as Sergeant Mike Swift, Stephen Graham as Corporal Danny Peterson, and Warren Brown as Lance Corporal Lee 'Hibbsey' Hibbs. The plot follows the three troops over the course of five years, starting with their service in the 2003 invasion of Iraq to 2007, examining the effect the war has on each of their lives.
