BBC News style Docudrama portraying the Battle of Culloden.
7 September 1999 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

A BBC News/documentary style fictional presentation of the Last battle fought on UK Soil between the Protestant "Butcher" Duke of Cumberland's Royalist Army and the Highland Clansmen ,led fruitlessly by Catholic pretender to the throne, "Bonny" Prince Charlie.

Cumberland's "modern" troops massacre the ill-fed, ill-equipped and exhausted Clansmen army and drive Charlie out of the Country. They then proceed to rapidly "ethnically cleanse" the highlands of it's indiginous people and claim it as English soil.

More harrowing than the notorious "The War Game" by the same director.

Despite the conflict in sixties news presentation style and historical setting, still totally believable. Should be watched in preference or in accompaniment to "Braveheart".
