Cyprus - basking in the hot Mediterranean sun. For most its an idyllic holiday setting, but under the old world charm lies hostility. For years there had always been tensions between the Greek and Turkish Cypriots, and when this flared into fighting in 1963, a large force on UN troops were called in to assist the British forces already there. We join the combined force for a look at their vital peacekeeping role.

Bring Tony Blair to justice for crime against peace in Yugoslavia and for war crimes against civilians during ilegal bombing of Serbia 1999, all with cluster bombs, depleted uranium munition, destuction of chemical industry and ecological catastrofies etc etc. Evil Empire all around the world with bloody traces. Long live free and independant and united Cyprus !!!!

Not sure what year this film was made but there constant patrol along the north coast, during the Turkish Invasion must have been absent that day.. What happened to the constant coastal patrols that day ?

Modern day British colonialism. Out of Cyprus. Instrumental in the downfall of the Cypriots using eoka and enosis as the pretext. Divide and rule. Cyprus is for the Cypriots not meddling powers who use it for their purposes en interests. Invaders and trespassers out.

why do you need UK in Cyprus what business do they have thousands miles away from England? They need to stay in their own country, no bases no UN,no turkey no nothing just visit for holiday and that's it. They have done nothing but sabbotage the Greek Cypriots letting the Turks in 1974. Sure Turks don't eat bacon but they don't mind working with Pigs.

Yes,, tensions between the Greek and Turkish Cypriots ,,,that were heavily sustained and well fed by the British colonial forces since 1878 (divide and conquer).....and the best part ''for a look at their vital peacekeeping role'' ,well that is a joke hehe

chris 90 very countries have a "clean" history, for so many countries, including the UK, it was about power. but talking to locals, the British army were perhaps the kindest occupying force!
