HRH The Prince of Wales introduces this Channel 5 documentary series on recipients of Britain's highest battlefield honour, the Victoria Cross. As Britain's highest accolade on the field of battle, the stories of people awarded the 'VC' are consistently fascinating. This series examines the instances in which this award has been bestowed from the time of its inception in the heyday of the Empire to the Gulf War by way of WW1, during which half the number ever awarded were handed out. All three programmes from the series are included: 'The Empire', 'The Great War' and 'The Modern Age'.
