No, I cant find it. We thankfully recorded it when it was first shown on TV, I think Sky have just resown it too. What I did find was an extended version of 'Commando: On the front line - Director's Cut (DVD)(2014) Each episode has been turned into 1 hour long episodes with a lot of unseen footage, it is worth getting.Hey guys anyone know where you can buy the channel 4 series? Can't seem to find it anywhere now it's no longer available on 4od

No. And quite frankly I hope it never sees the light of day again.
Hands down the worst programme of the Royal Marines or indeed of any unit in the British Military. It was an embarrassment, and whoever signed off on it needs a slap.
And the programme producers and staff are disgusting, spineless creatures.
There’s a dark backstory to that horrendous programme. It was an affront to the Royal Marines.
Agreed.Oh no, Sailor School was way worse!!
My biggest gripe about these shows are the potential risks to reputation. Not the institutional reputation but the personal and professional reputations of the young Recruits who do not elect to have their faces pixellated. I like to think that if all the Recruits had made a truly informed decison just about every face in the Commando School Recruit Troop would have been pixellated.
Admittedly I only watched a couple of episodes of Commando School but it was apparent that selective editing unfairly portrayed at least one Royal Marines NCO as a bit of a buffoon which—so I'm led to believe—resulted in social media abuse directed at his wife.
Even training team members wanted to not be filmed and the production team just cracked on and saw them off and lads were threatened with disciplinary action if they didn’t do it.
