Stamford Bridge - In Our Time
Melvyn tackles the other big battle of 1066 joined by a group of rather indecisive historians. It turns out that not much is actually known about this particular battle, and the experts were keen to talk about how poor the sources available are. This got in the way of a good telling of the story and frankly, was getting on Melvyn's nerves. Not a bad programme, though given that there was a much bigger and more important battle only a few weeks later it is a bit hard to get excited by this one.
