Hi all,
Just wanted to point out for those interested parties, this trailer for a new documentary, for History channel.

Its entitled '778 La Chanson de Roland', which for those of you that don't speak French, is '...the Song of Roland'
Its a doc. filmed on Location where the battle (of Roncesvalles) is thought to have taken place, in the region of Navarra in North Western Spain a few clicks south of France.
With Interviews with both French and Spanish Historians and Archeologists involved in the excavation of particular sites relating to this campaign and those that have made this story their particular area of study.

Along with dramatised scenes, shot in the original locations (or as near as dammit.) using actors from Spain, Germany and the UK.
The Director, Olivier van der Zee, has attempted to tell this story faithfully and without resorting to 'Hollywoodisms' in the action scenes with regard to combat style.
The film drama scenes do however include, very well done CGI footage, to recreate the Frankish camp at Paderborn, the Sacking of Pamplona and other stunning vistas.
The Full film documentary, as far as I am aware is due to be aired on History Channel. I am not privy as to which countries it will be aired in, although I do know the Narration is dubbed in Spanish, French and English (UK & US) versions.
Enjoy, regards
