Napoleon

Synopsis
2015 marks 200 years since the Battle of Waterloo. The three-part series sheds new light on Napoleon as an extraordinarily gifted military commander and a mesmeric leader whose private life - contrary to popular belief 200 years later - had many disappointments and betrayals: not least in relation to Josephine. Using recently uncovered historical evidence, and based upon almost a decade of research, the series provides a comprehensive portrait of Napoleon and the achievements of the benevolent dictator. A presenter-led version with Andrew Roberts is also available. The programmes may be purchased individually.
