Posted on Monday 19th November

Battlefield History TV – an military history Internet TV channel – received an award from the Guild of Battlefield Guides at an annual dinner at Bromsgrove.

Launched in 2008, BHTV broadcasts a wide variety of specialist programmes covering subject areas that would not normally be entertained or only covered superficially by terrestrial or satellite/cable channels, as view on demand (VOD) programmes. They also produce a range of DVDs.

The Guild of Battlefield Guides award for BHTV's film work was given particularly for their almost exclusive use of badged Guild members as presenters and on screen experts in their films.

The first recorded battlefield guide was Nathanial Wade. He took King James II around Sedgemore to show and tell him how the 1685 battle was won. Wade was a Rebel commander but did such a good job as a guide that the King pardoned him.

For more information about the range of DVDs which are available from Battlefield History TV, including the Peninsula Collection and the Waterloo Collection, as well as the Market Garden series of films, visit their page on the Pen and Sword Books website.
