Description

‘If I am not worthy to regain Jerusalem, I am not worthy to look upon it.’ King Richard I, The story of the Crusades. For nearly two centuries, generations of knights from England and Western Europe marched to do battle with the Saracen hordes who occupied the Holy Land. Bitter and bloody, these great battles are known to history as the Crusades. Perhaps most famous of all was Richard the Lionheart’s struggle with the Emperor Saladin on the burning sands of Palestine in 1190. ‘The Crusades – Knights of Christ’ features atmospheric reconstruction footage and spectacular computer effects to tell the dramatic story of the great conflict between Christianity and Islam. The programme also features dramatised ‘eye-witness’ accounts and expert comment and analysis. Narrated by Terry Molloy
