Abstract For centuries, the Battle of Agincourt has been a classic symbol of England's national heroism in the face of impossible odds. This program tells a different story. Based on firsthand accounts of the illustrious French knights Gilbert de Lannoy and the Duke of Brabant; Davy Gam, personal bodyguard to Henry V; two Lancashire archers; and an English army chaplain, the program uses vivid re-creations supported by expert commentary to provide a new perspective on the events of St. Crispin's Day 1415, when chivalry died. Juliet Barker, author of Agincourt; medieval historian Michael Jones; The University of York's Craig Taylor; and Tobias Capwell, Curator of Arms and Armor at the Wallace Collection, London, are featured.
