The stirring tale of a Nation's fight for Freedom. - In a mighty attempt to crush the Scots, King Edward II placed himself at the head of the Invasion of Scotland. In their desperate hour of need came Scotland's greatest medieval king, Robert, known simply as 'The Bruce'. The two forces would meet at a small stream within sight of Stirling Castle - the Bannockburn. The thunderous battle fought there would decide the fate of a Nation. - Featuring atmospheric reconstruction and re-enactment footage, 'The Battle of Bannockburn' features superb depictions of the savagery of medieval battle. The ebb and flow of a crucial day in British history is illustrated by the very latest 3D graphic mapping techniques combined with dramatised 'Eye-witness' accounts of the battle. With extensive original footage filmed in and around Stirling Castle itself, the programme provides a unique record of the most celebrated victory in Scotland's history.
Narrated by Iain Cuthbertson - Featuring expert comment and analysis by Sir David Chandler, the world's most foremost military historian and former head of War Studies at Sandhurst.
