The Charge of the Light Brigade


What a fantastic start to the weekend. 07:25 this morning on BBC2.


Historically - complete tosh - but this is Hollywood at its finest. Most of the film action takes place in India to establish the story, a local Prince massacres a British and Sepoy garrison, including the women and children. So they have to be avenged, when there he is with the Russians at Balaclava.


The film has a great final 15 minutes with the charge down the Valley of Death, just a shame the Union Flag was flying upside down.

As I said, a terrific start to the weekend.
