Few historical characters have courted controversy as much as Oliver Cromwell: murderer of a monarch or revolutionary hero? From humble beginnings he rose to lead an army that would overthrow the British monarchy and gain him the title of 'Lord Protector'. With comment from Tony Benn MP, this film examines the religious and political turmoil that would propel Cromwell to the pinnacle of his power, throw England into two civil wars and see Charles I sent to the block.
