When Edward the Confessor left the British throne to Harold Godwinson, the geopolitical uproar bought devastating invasions by the Vikings to the North and the Normans to the South. The harrowing conflicts that spelled the end of the Anglo-Saxon monarchy are revisited through the eyes of two young Britons (Mike Bailey, Tim Plester) drafted for battle. Francis Magee, Soren Byder, Anthony Debaeck co-star; Ian Holm narrates. 150 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English.
