The Sharpe Series consists of 14 two-hour tv films which were originally broadcast over a period of five years in the UK on ITV. They have since been seen all over the world.

During his time working on the series, actor Jason Salkey kept an extensive video record of behind-the-scenes life, both on the set, and off.

Dear Sean Bean fans,

Thanks to all of you for your continued interest in the Harris project.

This is the last Harris episode before they possibly start shooting Sharpe again in India at the end of the year. Not that will have any bearing on the Harris Project because - barring a miraculous leap of imagination - the chosen men will not ride by Sharpe's side.

Anyway, I always promise lots of Sean in the Diaries, and this occasion is no different.

This Diary [H5] takes place during the fourth series of Sharpe, with Sean's career rocketing - having just shot GoldenEye and lined up to play the male lead in Anna Karenina. This was also the shoot on which he was to meet his future wife.

But, as always, you, the fans, will let me know if you like the film and if there's enough of the Yorkshire lad in it to keep you happy. But I will say - if you liked the last four parts of Harris, you'll not be disappointed.

Jason 'Harris' Salkey
