The Deeds of Henry V

The Deeds of Henry V is a series of 26 video portraits depicting characters who give their accounts on events as they happened 600 years ago, during the lead-up, crux and aftermath of Henry V’s campaign to Agincourt.

We are guided through time by the mystery writer of Gesta Henrici Quinti, The Chronicler of the deeds of Henry V, and one of the best authorities on Henry V’s actions between his accession to 1416 that we have to date.

The voice of the chronicler is performed by Samuel West (Notting Hill, Howards End and BBC One’s – Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell).
