All Along The Watchtower, 1999

Not to be confused with the song of the same name, this 6 part TV sitcom ran for just 1 series in 1999.

Summary

The setting is RAF Auchnacluchnie, a nearly abandoned ,early-warning radar station situated in the highlands of Scotland overlooking a small village.

The base has just two remaining staff who don’t seem to realise that the cold war is over as they continue their efforts to ward off the threat of nuclear attack.

All continues peacefully until the arrival of Flight Lieutenant Simon Harrison , who has come to assess the usefulness of the station.
