For those in the US, a documentary I worked on earlier this year - as a talking head and as one of the writers - will be shown this Sunday night on the Weather Channel at 2100. It is repeated for much of the week. Times are here. Part of a series called Weather that Changed the World it looks as the Battle of Teutoburg Forest in AD9. Here is the blurb from the Weather Channel website:
In the year 9AD three legions of the highly trained and well-armed Roman troops were slaughtered in the Teutoburg Forest, North East Germany. Their enemy, treachery from within and a rough coalition of Germanic tribesmen who’s knowledge of the landscape and the weather that dominates it enabled them to throw off the threat of being engulfed by the empire. More importantly, this humiliating defeat led to the abandonment of all Roman expansion into Germania Magna.
The trailer for the series is splendidly bombastic!
