Cnut the Conqueror - History of England Dave Crowther
Cnut put a lot of effort into appearing English, and has managed to obscure the fact that he was in fact Danish pretty successfully. Dave is getting into his stride with this series now - this is a crisp well presented episode that takes us from the early years of Cnut's reign through to his death. On the way we learn a lot about the man and his times. A nice bit of work.
Cnut has also had the Rex Factor treatment.
