BAT­TLE CAS­TLE

Doco 7.30pm, SBSONE

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - Sunday Highlights - – DS

His­to­rian and pre­sen­ter Dan Snow charts the sto­ries be­hind six of the world’s most fa­mous me­dieval cas­tles, and the bat­tles which de­fined them. It’s a fas­ci­nat­ing dis­sec­tion of ar­chi­tec­tural mar­vels which stood the test of time, and waves of en­emy at­tack. First on the list is the Crac des Cheva­liers in Syria, built in the 12th and 13th cen­turies, with steeply-sloped walls, a hid­den moat and a deadly ramp en­trance to re­pel at­tack­ers.
