It was one of the most famous battles in military history. The Battle of Balaclava was distinguished by three celebrated acts the heroic courage of The Thin Red Line, the dashing bravery of the Heavy Brigade and, of course the utter disaster which befell the Light Brigade as it made it¹s infamous charge.
It was a day during which the key players in the drama had a vital bearing on the outcome the uncertain Raglan, the feuding Lucan and Cardigan, the excitable Captain Nolan.
Featuring special dramatised eye-witness accounts and reconstructions, period imagery and 3D mapping techniques, this video is a dramatic record of the notorious Charge of the Light Brigade.
The programme also features extensive footage from the Tony Richardson masterpiece "The Charge of the Light Brigade" to illustrate the ebb and flow of the fighting during a truly momentous day in the history of warfare
