Acclaimed TV historian Dan Snow explores Britain through the eyes of the Norman conquerors. This historic perspective shines new light on landscapes and histories we have come to take for granted, and reveals a texture to the landscape of Britain that time has almost erased. As seen on BBC Television.Episodes:The InvasionDan Snow starts his exploration of Norman Britain from the towering viewpoint of Beachy Head. These great cliffs would have been the first sign of England viewed by William, Duke of Normandy, and his invasion force as they sailed across the Channel in the autumn of 1066. But did William and the Normans really land at Pevensey as the Bayeux Tapestry would have us believe? And did they erect the first of their great castles even before victory on the battlefield?The Welsh MarchesThis second Norman Walk explores a story of settlement and colonisation in one of the most unsettled corners of the new Norman kingdom. Why are the Welsh borders so littered with castles? This is the subject of Dan’s walk beside the Black Mountains and the Monnow Valley taking in Longtown Castle, White Castle, Skenfrith and Grosmont.YorkshireYork was the focal point for William the Conqueror’s infamous Harrying of the North, a period of terror that devastated the country between York and Durham five years after the conquest. From here to Helmsley Castle and the site of the great Abbey of Rievaulx, we discover how the first Cistercian monks, with the support of Walter Espec, brought communications, wool and mining industries to the north.

Scotland, 1812. He's ferocious and rugged to the bone, an English soldier more at home on the battlefield than in any society drawing room. And when Major Gabriel Forrester learns that he has inherited the massive Scottish Highlands title and estate of a distant relation, the last thing he wants to do is give up the intensity of the battlefield for the too-soft indulgences of noble life. But Gabriel Forrester does not shirk his responsibilities, and when he meets striking, raven-eyed lass Fiona Blackstock, his new circumstances abruptly become more intriguing. Like any good Highlander, Fiona despises the English - and the new Duke of Lattimer is no exception. Firstly, he is far too attractive for Fiona's peace of mind. Secondly, his right to "her" castle is a travesty, since it's been clan Maxwell property for ages. As the two enter a heated battle of wills, an unexpected passion blazes into a love as fierce as the Highlands themselves. Is Fiona strong enough to resist her enemy's advances - or is Gabriel actually her hero in disguise? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Flora MacDonald.
