Storyline

Docudrama from a British viewpoint, of the Third Crusade, led by Richard I (the Lionheart), versus Muslim forces under Sultan Saladin Ayubi. Richard's coalition battles to re-take Jerusalem after Saladin captured it from the Crusaders in 1189. The Christian Richard, age 33, faces intrigues back home by his brother Prince John, plus dissension within the Crusader coalition over tactics. The 61 year old Saladin, a Kurd, must repulse the invaders or be sacked by the Emirs. The two great military leaders' methods differ, with Saladin employing pitched battles and scorched earth tactics, while Richard is a master of sieges. Written by David Stevens

A good factual account by the BBC
23 March 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I was very happy with the BBC's adaption of Richard the Lionheart most people know the name but not what he did and to say this happened nearly 1000years ago shows the power of his name. The style of the program is a Doc/Drama which works very well its hasn't got Hollywood big budget effects but then again this was more a historical documentary drama . The last battle scene was very enjoyable if it wasn't true i would not believe it could have happened and the actor who played King Richard (Steven Waddington ) was excellent he was very convincing if you like history i would recommend you watch this program as it a very interesting tale.
