I have long had a fascination for the Communist insurgency in Malaya.
Firstly because the conflict is seen as a rare success in terms of a British counter-insurgency campaign. Secondly because the reality is of course more complicated - the British did indeed leave, yet the Communists found no role in independent Malaysia, and bizarrely continued fighting until the late 1980s. Many of their veterans are resettled in Thai border villages. Thirdly my interest was reinforced by probably the best book I have read by a participant in any insurgency - Alias Chin Peng, the memoirs of the former Secretary General of the Communist Party of Malaya.
On Thursday 21 July at 1145 BBC2 airs a fictional drama made during the insurgency - 1957's "Windom's Way". I have never seen it, and indeed never even heard of it, but will watch it with interest.
