It was on the bloody battlefield of Hastings in 1066 A.D. that William, Duke of Normandy, defeated and killed the gallant but battle weary Harold II of England. From that day forward, England would never be the same. Multiple uprisings in the north were mercilessly crushed and a new ruling class of Norman Barons was gradually established within the region.
This program paints a unique portrait of a remarkable man who was at once a great warrior and a ruthless politician and statesman.
