William the Conqueror, the Norman who dared to invade England

This week, we've headed north to Calvados in Normandy for a special show all about the first Norman king of England, William the Conqueror, precisely 950 years after he won the Battle of Hastings. The young Duke of Normandy's childhood was anything but ordinary. And after consolidating power in his own Duchy, he went on to win the Battle of Hastings on 14th October 1066 and was crowned King of England ten weeks later, completely transforming history on both sides of the Channel.
