Brand New & Factory Sealed. Region 2 PAL (UK & Europe). IMPORTANT: This is the official Czech release. The front cover is exactly as pictured and the back cover has Czech text. The film itself has optional Czech sound & subtitles on/off. ORIGINAL ENGLISH SOUNDTRACK - GUARANTEED > > > > > From the writer of the excellent 'Bow Street runner' mini-series "City of Vice", and director of the powerful drama "The Relief of Belsen", comes the untold story of the Norman conquest. "1066" chronicles a defining chapter in British history, exploring the conflict through the eyes of the those up close to the action, on the battlefield and caught up in the fray. The lavish two-part feature-length drama stars Mike Bailey (Skins) Francis Magee (Layer Cake), and Soren Byder (Foyle's War)... The beginning of 1066 takes place in early September 1066, in the Anglo-Saxon village of Crownhurst, located off the southeastern coast of England in the land of Sussex. In a barn, a young man named Tofi (Mike Bailey), is about to be married. The wedding is soon interrupted by Ordgar (Francis Magee), an Anglo-Saxon general and warrior. Leofric (Tim Plester), a friend of Tofi and Ordgar, meets him. Ordgar has travelled from Westminster Abbey and has received orders from King Harold II that he is fearing impending attack from William the Conqueror, the cousin of the previous Anglo-Saxon king Edward the Confessor. They have to go fighting the Vikings of Harald Hardrada in the north east of England. After defeating the Vikings at the battle of Stamford Bridge, they are told that the Normans landed in the south, near Hastings. They walk all the way back to fight them. When they arrive in Crowhurst, they see that all women have been taken away by the Normans. They arrive to free some of them but some others were already dead. In the end they go fighting in Hastings and most of them die. Tofi is the only one to survive...

5.0 out of 5 stars History with a difference 27 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase
This was great, a documentary style, gritty and gut wrenching, it felt authentic and told truth about our early past with believable characters pushing the storyline. Excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Bit Of A Gem 24 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase
Really enjoyed this story told through the real people of the time. A real memory jogger in terms of History even though as usual not all was completely accurate, for sure. Although a low budget production it did not come over as such as the low key actors were engaging and the strong script made up for other inadequacies. Will be interesting to compare to the big budget version due in 2015. I liked it and it will take some beating factoring for the cost of the big screen version to come.

A series of three BBC docu-dramas on one disc. Soon got to grips with the Czech menu. English dialogue. Good value.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good slice of history 15 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase
Nicely told, obviously on a budget but well put to together, well acted, good feel of the time and surprisingly convincing. As with most historically accurate documentary dramatisation it is difficult to fully engage with the characters especially if you know your histories from your school days. However I did enjoy it, there was a sufficient covering of flesh to the bones of history to present an interesting insight into what was important to lordly and common folk around these times along with a very good view of the black and whites of society seemingly swinging between brutality and cheap lives to kindnesses and social justice. At the price I paid, well worth a watch!
