    Care to point them out, as I've done quite a bit of study on the videos and it seems to be generally correct.

    Bits about how the archers at agincourt were in horseback, and how knights armour weighed nithing. But i don't want an argumant to start.

    Not planning to start one. I was just wondering what you believed to be incorrect. Though there are primary sources which show that there were mounted archers at Agincourt (typically through pictures showing longbowmen firing their arrows from horseback). As for the armour, there were parts which showed that the armour was quite heavy (i.e. putting someone in full plate, and fighting non-stop, they could only fight for maybe 10 minutes at most. Then again this was someone who was not used to armour, but nonetheless it certainly doesn't show that it weighed nothing.)

    There is evidence of Longbowmen using horses as transport but not firing whilst mounted. Show me the evidence and i'll gladly consider the idea though.

    The battle of Bir Hakeim

    A grain of sand had curbed the Axis advance, which reached Al-Alamein only after the arrival of the rested British divisions: this grain of sand was Bir Hakeim.

    In this series, Cruickshank takes a five month world tour visiting his choices of the eighty greatest man-made treasures, including buildings and artifacts. His tour takes him through 34 countries and 6 of the 7 continents (he does not visit Antarctica).

    Dan Cruickshank

He is an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Institute of British Architects, a member of the Executive Committee of the Georgian Group and on the Architectural Panel of the National Trust.

    He has served as Historic Buildings Consultant for Robert Adam Architects since 1999 and has been involved in the repair and restoration of many historical buildings including Spencer House in St James’s, Heveningham Hall in Suffolk and numerous early eighteenth century houses in Spitalfields and other parts of London.[1]

    His professional publications include London the Art of Georgian Buildings, The National Trust and Irish Georgian Society Guide to the Georgian Buildings of Britain and Ireland and ‘’Life in the Georgian City’’. He edited the 20th edition of Sir Banister Fletcher’s History of Architecture and Timeless Architecture: a study of key buildings in architectural history and is a contributing editor to Architects’ Journal, The Architectural Review and Perspectives on Architecture.

    The Lost Pyramids Of Caral

    The magnificent ancient city of pyramids at Caral in Peru hit the headlines in 2001. The site is a thousand years older than the earliest known civilisation in the Americas and, at 2,627 BC, is as old as the pyramids of Egypt. Many now believe it is the fabled missing link of archaeology - a 'mother city'. If so, then these extraordinary findings could finally answer one of the great questions of archaeology: why did humans become civilised? A lot has been discussed since this was put out. From Seattle Times (December 23, 2004): "A Peruvian site previously reported as the oldest city in the Americas actually is a much larger complex of as many as 20 cities with huge pyramids and sunken plazas sprawled over three river valleys, researchers report." Construction began in 3000 B.C (300-400 years before the people of Kemet/Egypt began the Pyramid of Djoser). These cities flourished peacefully for more than 1,200 years.

    The Shimabara Rebellion (島原の乱, Shimabara no ran) was an uprising largely involving Japanese peasants, most of them Catholic Christians, in 16371638 during the Edo period.

    Inside the medieval mind - BBC/Open University

    Professor Robert Bartlett, one of the world’s leading medievalists, is the host on a new landmark history series Inside the Medieval Mind.

    The four-part series, co-produced by The Open University, will explore the mindset and lifestyle of medieval citizens and will reveal what motivated people who lived between 800AD and 1400AD and what beliefs we share with our ancestors.

    Knowledge explores the disenchantment of the medieval world, as a rediscovery of ancient knowledge and new methods of scholarship in universities led to an intellectual and scientific revolution during this period, whilst exploration and trading contacts expanded the medieval world view beyond all imagination.

    Sex investigates the private lives of medieval men and women, looking at theories of sexual difference, the realities of male-female relationships and courtly romance, and the attitudes of the Church authorities and wider society to marriage, sex and sexual practice, homosexuality, virginity and the celibate vocation.

    Belief explores the fundamental place of religious faith and practice to the identity of people in the Middle Ages. It looks at the relationship between the physical and supernatural worlds, the place of pilgrimage, the sacraments and the power of demons, angels and saints in everyday life and the changing relationship of the Church to monasticism, crusading and those outside conventional Christian society.

    Finally, Power analyses the workings of medieval secular society and the assumptions of people at the time about inequality and the distribution of power. It looks at the lot of the peasantry under feudal, forest and common law codes, the realities of chivalry and the military role of the aristocracy, and the relationship of the medieval king to his subjects – and what might happen when that relationship broke down.

    All episodes on this Youtube channel.

    The Wehrmacht in Russia.

    This 3 DVD set shows the war in Russia from the German experience, a powerful study of that titanic conflict as seen through contemporary German newsreels and told in the words of the men who fought and died for Hitler. Each DVD traces the fate of the three army troops which began the campaign and follows the course of this vicious campaign as the optimism of Barbarossa inexorably rolls on

    Stone Age Columbus. BBC Horizon.

    Who were the first people in North America? From where did they come? How did they arrive? The prehistory of the Americas has been widely studied. Over 70 years a consensus became so established that dissenters felt uneasy challenging it. Yet in 2001, genetics, anthropology and a few shards of flint combined to overturn the accepted facts and to push back one of the greatest technological changes that the Americas have ever seen by over five millennia.

    Colour of War-The Anzacs.

    Narrated by Russell Crowe, whose late grandfather was a war cinematographer, Colour of War portrays the story of Australia and New Zealand at war as never seen before.

    This powerful and moving three-part series featuring only colour footage, paints a vividly detailed picture of the Australian and New Zealand troops from the build up to World War II to the end of the Vietnam conflict. Rare newsreels, home movies and compelling first-hand accounts capture the thoughts and feelings of people caught up in history and the moods of the two countries as they prepared for international conflict.

    Diary and letter extracts tap into the lives of ordinary people living through world-shattering events, and reveal with great poignancy how ever part of society was touched by war.

    Years of international research has unearthed footage of troops in Crete, Italy and North Africa in the 40's, in the snows of Korea in the 50's and the jungles of Vietnam in the 60's. Also featured is film of Eleanor Roosevelt's and Lyndon B Johnson's visits down under, women working on the land and in factories, and children playing dress-ups as soldiers and nurses. Much of the material was shot unofficially by civilians and servicemen, providing an eyewitness account of life in troubled times.
