Titles in this series include:

  • The Battle of Trafalgar
    • The Battle: The most famous naval battle of all - Napoleon's plan to invade England was ended forever by Admiral Lord Nelson's fleet. "England expects every man will do his duty." Nelson's celebrated signal opened the Battle of Trafalgar, the most famous engagement of the age of sail. Tragically, he would not live to enjoy his crowning glory. Cut down by a French sniper at the very moment of triumph, his greatest victory was also destined to be his memorial, for his fleet ended forever the Emperor Napoleon's dream of an invasion of England.
    • The Program: The Battle of Trafalgar draws extensively on two of the most accurate reconstructions of the age of sail ever filmed. Also featuring dramatized "eye-witness" accounts shot aboard Nelson's famous flagship, the program includes special 3D graphic images and superb contemporary images to tell the story of a momentous day in naval history.
  • 1812 The Battle of Borodino
    • The Battle: The bloodiest battle of the ill-starred invasion of Russia. The battle of Borodino took place during Emperor Napoleon's disastrous Russian invasion of 1812 and was one of the most crucial battles of the entire Napoleonic era.
      The two sides met, just 60 miles from Moscow, on September 7, 1812. For a man who had earned a reputation as a military genius, Napoleon failed to make the most of his long-awaited opportunity: he simply hurled his troops at the determined Russians. The result was the single biggest bloodbath of the Napoleonic wars - more than 68,000 troops were killed or wounded.
    • The Program: Featuring superb feature-film battle reconstructions, this is the story of the battle that forced Napoleon to turn for home and begin the infamous retreat from Moscow. The program also features period imagery and expert analyses by leading authorities on the Napoleonic war.
  • The Napoleonic Wars
    • The Battles: A powerful overview of the great battles of Napoleon. This is the powerful story of an era dominated by one remarkable man: the Emperor Napoleon, a man who has attracted more debate than almost any figure in history. Ruthless, despotic, but an undoubted military genius, this informative film follows the Emperor from his early days, through the glorious victory at Austerlitz, to the disasters of the Russian campaign and final defeat at Waterloo.
