Online video giant Amazon is to premiere all six episodes of original dramatic series The Last Post on Prime Video in the US.

AmazonLastPost 28Nov2017From BAFTA award-winner Peter Moffat (The Night Of), the Last Post is set during the social and political unrest of the mid-sixties, in the simmering heat of Aden, Yemen, and centres on the lives of a unit of Royal Military Police officers and their families.

The men in the police unit don’t have easy jobs: half soldiers, half policemen and full-time husbands and fathers who face constant insurgency and threat. Danger is everywhere. Based on Moffat's childhood memories, his father's life as an officer in the Royal Military Police and his mother's struggle between being what the army required her to be and what she felt like being, The Last Post is an in depth look at the sacrifices made by soldiers and their families.

The programme is an Amazon Original Series in the US and was made by Bonafide Films and The Forge Entertainment for BBC One in the UK.
