My TV guide for this evening (Monday 5th November) states that the program on at 1930hrs on BBCFour is ‘Regimental Stories’ in which ‘The Royal Welsh Regiment celebrate the Battle of Rorke’s Drift’. I think it’s been on before but might be worth checking out.

I think it was from a couple of years ago, there was an unintentional bit of humour with a soldier in full dress uniform being knocked down by the mascot if I recall right

Factually it was reasonably accurate with a few corners cut. Newcomers would learn a lot from it though.
I don't think narrator was the best man for the job.

Just as many visitors to the forum will point out that the 24th at the time of the Anglo-Zulu War was correctly titled '2nd Warwickshire'. The modern regiment is 'The Royal Welsh' and certainly not the Royal Welsh Regiment.
