DISC ONE - THE BATTLE OF STIRLING BRIDGE
This DVD tells the dramatic story of the great Scottish triumph over the English which took place at Stirling Bridge on September 11th 1297. Their momentous victory confirmed the reputation of William Wallace and made him a national hero, his name has loomed large in the pages of Scottish history ever since. After a short but brutal battle, the English were driven from the land, leaving Edward I swearing a terrible revenge. Battle reconstruction, location footage and expert analysis from leading military historians combine to create an atmospheric and action-packed account of this famous battle in British history. Narrated by Mike Leighton.
DISC TWO - THE BATTLE OF BANNOCKBURN
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 Scotlands 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 Scotlands history. Narrated by Iain Cuthbertson.
DISC THREE - CULLODEN MOOR 1746
On a barren Scottish moor in April 1746, the tired and hungry men of the last Highland army made their final desperate charge against a well-disciplined British force led by the Duke of Cumberland. Despite their incredible courage and valour, the result was a foregone conclusion - the clan warriors met a terrible end. It was to be the defeat and ruin of the Jacobite cause... forever. This is the moving story of the last great battle to be fought on British soil. Culloden 1746 features spectacular, accurate battle reconstructions and re-enactments, plus moving footage shot on Culloden Moor as it is today. The programmes dramatised eye-witness accounts, period imagery and computer-generated maps combine perfectly to provide a superb and accurate account of a crucial day in British history. Narrated by Brian Blessed.
