When History Hack was young, Alex, Alina and Woody had a crazy idea to try and speak to 'a couple' of the cast of Band of Brother, then 20 years on from filming. It, frankly, got a bit out of hand and a wild series of recordings followed that originally aired in 4 parts. To celebrate 20 years since the final episode of Band of Brothers airing, we have recorded a new introduction with Woody and Alex to remember the crazy days in Lockdown 1 and have cut the four parts into one. We have tried to even out the audio as much as possible but it is very much a drunken zoom chat with a bunch of beloved actors. We hope you do enjoy this special episode.

Be warned. Actors like to swear. A lot. Especially when it comes to bootcamp.
