|Description ||One of the images used time and again during the Channel 4 programme, "The Celts" was of a hoard of Celts running towards camera... far from being in prehistoric France, it was in a field near Billericay in Essex in July 2005!|
Originally filmed for "Battlefield Detectives" on the siege of Alesia, Granada Factuals, who produced both programmes, I believe, spliced some of the footage from in with "The Celts".
My back was seen and voice was heard going "argh" whilst the Republican Romans jostled their shield wall and swords with The Gauls.
|Nice one Tim. Are you the one with the brown belt on? in middle of pic.

sorry for being miserable about BRITISH reconstructions of battles, take it all back. But I was probably thinking about the buildings of the Heuneberg fortress.. Moss|
|No, Hailstones; I'm stood behind the camera taking the photo! I was a Republican Roman, not one of the Gauls. If you catch the Battlefield Detectives episode about Alesia, I am 1) keeping sentry guard while other romans dig siegeworks, 2) in a good pushy shove scene with shields and swords meeting... I actually skinned a knuckle of mine doing that one, and ended up head over heals falling over dead Gauls, and 3) I am in a line of Romans ignoring starving women & children. In one of the takes, I have my face stroked in a pleading manner by one of the women (!), but as I haven't seen this programme, I don't know what scenes they used. It was a surprise seeing this scene last night, as it was for a different programme!|
|I saw that documentary on the Discovery channel. Amusingly at about the same time, I was able to get the Film "Vercingetorix" with Christopher Lambert from the Video Store which had very similar scenes. They had a German playing Ceasar, which didn't sell as well. |
