“THE FEW, THE PROUD (Part 1)”
Dokumentaryo ni Jay Taruc
September 9, 2013
 
Over the years, the term “Marine” has come to signify a distinct reputation of being tough and the most elite among the units of the Armed Forces of the Philippines. They were among the major forces that launched counter insurgency operations in Mindanao. One momentous victory for the Marines was the siege of Camp Abubakar in 2000.
 
For the first time in the history of Philippine television, a documentary program was invited to follow the rigorous training of three hundred individuals who want to be part of the prestigious Philippine Marine Corps.
 
From day 1, Jay Taruc and his team witnessed the transformation of these individuals from being civilians to the “Reception” that weed out the weak from the strong. This reception is the final step in determining who will become candidate-soldiers that will undergo the arduous process of searching for the few and proud men.

On Sept. 9 and 16, history will unfold as this two-part series, one year in the making documentary airs on GMA 7.

Filipino version
Sa paglipas ng mga taon, ang salitang "Marine" ay may reputasyon bilang matitibay at ang pinakapiling yunit ng Sandatahang Lakas ng Pilipinas. Isa sila sa pangunahing pwersa na lumaban sa mga rebelde sa Mindanao, at ang pagkapanalo nila sa camp Abubakar noong taong 2000 ay isa sa kanilang pinakamahalagang tagumpay.

Sa unang pagkakataon sa kasaysayan ng telebisyon sa Pilipinas, masusulyapan ang dokumentaryo na magpapakita ng matinding pagsasanay ng tatlong daang indibidwal na nais mapasama sa hanay ng prestiryosong Hukbo ng Mandirigmang Marino.

Mula sa unang araw, nasaksihan ng Jay Taruc at ng kanyang team ang transpormasiyon ng kanilang pagiging sibilyan hanggang sa "Reception" na kung saan hinihiwalay ang mahihina sa malalakas.

Ang Reception ay ang pinakahuling hakbang upang matukoy kung sinu-sino ang mapapabilang sa listahan ng candidate soldiers na susuong sa napakahirap na proseso sa paghahanap ng mga tibaguriang "The few, the proud".

Sa September 9 at 16 mapapanood sa GMA 7 ang makasaysayang dalawang parteng serye ng dokumentaryo na binuo ng isang buong taon.
