Yours Till The End

Two survivors of the hostage crisis - their amazing story.

Jackie Mann, a 75-year-old British pub-keeper in Beirut and a WW II Spitfire pilot, was picked up on the street one morning in 1989 by Palestinian terrorists and held hostage for two and a half years.

Kept in chains and isolation, Mann, the oldest of all the hostages taken in the Middle East, kept up a stoic spirit that brought him through the ordeal.

His wife, Sunnie, never knew if he was alive but stayed on in war-torn Beirut, waiting for word.

Alternately, Jack and Sunnie each recount the drama of their daily lives in homely detail, drawing a picture of mutual devotion and staunchness of spirit.
