William Marshal Conquers BBC
Great news to all ardent admirers, but also to those who have never heard of Henry the Young King's friend and most celebrated champion,William Marshal. There is a BBC Two Programme about him coming on Wednesday, 26 March. Written and presented by Dr Thomas Asbridge (the author of the brilliant The First Crusade: A New History) and directed by Mr Jack MacInnes, it is going to bring pure joy to the watchers and make William Marshal proud again. At least I sincerely hope so :-) Many thanks to my friend Anerje for letting me know about it.
I am also reading, which I find even more exciting, that Dr Asbridge's latest book, A Knight's Tale, will be published in December 2014. It is going to be a "facinating and revealing” biography of William Marshal. Looking forward to it!
