Boudicca`s famous revolt against the Roman Empire is brought to life by a highly informative & entertaining programme featuring live actors & impressive CGI of enormous battle scenes. Father & Son team, Dan & Peter Snow, show us how the seeds of revolt were sown, to Boudicca`s defeat by the Roman Army. Because not very much historical fact is known about her, the programme concentrates on the consequences & conclusion of the revolt rather than as a short social history of the Britons. The final, bloody stand-off between the 2 armies is wonderfully staged & presented, as we see the enormous, seething mass of Boudicca`s force hurl themselves against the shield wall of a Roman Army outnumbered 10 to 1. Likened by one historian as a "relentless chainsaw", the disciplined Roman Legions hacked their way to victory & Boudicca committed suicide. Although not very long, Boudicca`s Revolt entertains, informs & breathes life into a period of history when the "plucky Brits" took on the world`s greatest Super Power & lost.
