"1066 the Movie" - There has been a lot of talk about this new forthcoming British production (very much still in the early production stage).

You can also visit the official "1066 Blog".

And author Helen Hollick is also affiliated with the movie.

Yes, English director Robin Jacob has been researching the topic over the past three years, and latterly co-written the script with author Helen Hollick, as you say.

I've posted on the 1066 blog a few times, and Helen's myspace page 'Harold'(in the blog link). Mr jacob has been in direct contact with me himself (about some unrelated drawings I do) and assures us that there are several 'high profile' actors/resses reading the script now (Johnny Depp? Sean Bean? etc). Also that although the film has US funding, he will fight hard to not let it go the way of Braveheart, and keep a more English viewpoint, with artistic integrity.

Ironaxe and Melisende:

I've been following the course of this 1066: The Movie site, and I've even tried to sign up so I can reply to some of the posts, but so far, I've been unable to sign up. Soi despite my good intentions, I remain silent there.

will and grace
In 1998, a new comedy called "will and grace series" made its official debut on US comedy channel NBC. The series was widely talked about. I live in the UK, and Will & Grace has only been on our television screens for little over two years, but - as in America - the show has made a huge impact and formed huge fanclubs amongst both the gay and straight communities. will and grace seasons 1-8 dvd boxset have been available in the UK for around a year, so I think it's about time the show is released will and grace on dvd in America! I buy will and grace dvd after much awaiting the will and grace 8 series to come out on DVD. I saved up and I have to say that buying the box set was completely and utterly worth every single penny.It is great for will and grace dvd for sale in the shop.

Back in my beloved Sussex, I have just spent an hour on Senlac Field with 5000 others for one of the Bonfire events.

Gives you a real feel of what the battle felt like!

A fine mixture of smugglers, Romans, Knights, convicts, cowboys, soldiers, sailors, cavaliers, Vikings, drummers etc etc, but no one who seemed to be a Norman!

And we burnt the Guy on a massive fire!

No Normans to slay? Oh dear. And you didn't burn Fat William in effigy? How sad. But I guess that wouldn't have been fitting, with all those pirates, cowboys, Vikings, etc., in the area. Oh well. . . .maybe next year. . . . :) :mad: :mad:

I realise this is an old thread, but given no film is perfect, I enjoyed many aspects of 1066.  It's great to see any early medieval material on screen.
