The rise and fall of the Kingdom of Man
On a small island in the Irish Sea, fortresses preside over the rugged shores. This unlikely location was the birthplace of a medieval empire that lasted 200 years. Rulers built coastal fortresses on cliffs, roved the seaways, and threw themselves into epic battles to consolidate control over an impressive maritime kingdom. Andrew McDonald uncovers this forgotten dynasty of sea kings. [Directed by WOW-HOW Studio, narrated by Jack Cutmore-Scott, music by Stephen LaRosa].
