"Thanks to all the familiar faces," was how Sergeant singer Nick Mercer signed off from this show, "and a few new ones, as well." The quartet are from Glenrothes in Fife, less than an hour's drive north of Edinburgh, so this Edge festival gig fell somewhere between a big deal and a local show.

The word "fallout" is casual currency these days. It gets used to refer to the consequences of any action or situation, consequences that aren't necessarily serious, or even negative. Roy Williams may have been thinking of the word in that colloquial sense when he used Fallout as the title of his 2003 play about the aftermath of a stabbing, now brought to your television set as part of Channel 4's season on street crime. But if that was all the meaning he was interested in, he could just as well have called it "Aftermath" or "Consequences". I suspect that what he had in mind was the more precise original definition: the radioactive dust that descends after a nuclear explosion. A murder such as the one depicted here is a kind of Ground Zero; and afterwards the poison settles all around, contaminating the lives of everyone it touches.

Florent Emilio Siri's horrifically disturbing story concerns a platoon of French soldiers fighting National Liberation Front guerrillas over rugged Algerian terrain in 1959. A raw young lieutenant (Benoît Magimel) tries to impose his humanitarian principles on the conduct of the war, a modus operandi his battle-hardened sergeant (Albert Dupontel) knows will fail amid this savagery.
