Description

Few kings in English history deserve the epithet “great” more than Alfred, King of Wessex. In an age and country blighted by Viking invasions, Alfred inflicted repeated defeats upon the Norsemen and set about administrating the Danelaw to secure the unity of England. The great king also organised his forces into a standing army and built a recognised navy. Alfred was not only a fine warrior but was also a deeply religious man, a scholar and lawmaker. Featuring superb atmospheric dramatised reconstructions, surviving period imagery and “eye-witness” reports, this programme provides a unique account of the life of one of England’s truly great monarchs. Narrated by Peter Twist
