Visually arresting and exhaustively researched, WARRIORS is an absorbing six episode docudrama series revealing key moments in the lives of some of history's greatest warriors. Shot in exotic locations from the mountains of Mexico to the temples of Japan, from Malta to Morocco, and using stunning CGI to recreate battles on an epic scale, episodes reveal what made Napoleon, Attila the Hun, Cortes, Spartacus, Richard the Lionheart and shogun Tokugawa Ieyasus, Japan's most famous Samurai, different from average mortal soldiers.

BUT DON'T TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT, HERE IS WHAT THE BRITISH PRESS HAD TO SAY ABOUT THE SERIES:

". . . battle scenes and ancient landscapes to match The Lord of the Rings or Gladiator." Will Hodgkinson, Guardian

"The special effects were astonishingly good and it was the kind of show that your TV was invented for." Lorrain Kelly, Sun

"To say that this new film by garlanded visual effects designer and now director Gareth Edwards was merely spectacular would be to do it a disservice. Not only is it a masterpiece of impressively lifelike CGI work, it's also a penetrating visual and psychological study of one of the greatest leaders and military strategists of Late Antiquity delivered in the form of an engaging drama. A treat." Mike Bradley, Observer

". . . a Hollywood-scale film has been made on a British TV budget . . ." Will Hodgkinson, Guardian

"Blockbusting historical dramas are difficult to pull off on television. Either they suffer from clunking exposition-speak to get the history across, or they are handicapped by a limited budget, so that a handful of extras in clean uniforms has to stand in for an army. Neither is the case here." David Chater, The Times

". . . the best CGI effects you have ever seen on a TV show." Caitlin Moran, The Times

". . . mix of intriguing historical information and exhilarating, slightly mad entertainment . . ." James Walton, Daily Telegraph

"It's a handsome production with plenty of action and a starry cast." Critic's Choice, Daily Mail

". . . meticulously researched but all-action drama documentaries . . . " Sunday Telegraph

". . . a stonking cast, great locations and a knowing script . . . " Keith Watson, London Metro

". . . your blocks will be busted." David Chater, The Times
