[BBC/Netflix] TROY ( Fall Of A City )
The BBCs new epic Troy: Fall Of A City will be a familiar story to fans of Greek mythology, or at least those who know the story of the Trojan horse. Those who arent familiar with either will enjoy this great bit of Saturday night entertainment in a similar vein to Game Of Thrones or Vikings.
The BBC has described it as a story of love that threatens to bring an empire to its knees.
Combining thrilling adventure with heartbreaking intimacy, it explores primal emotions, the psychological repercussions of human actions and life-changing decisions amid the devastation and destruction of war.
Told from the perspective of the Trojan royal family at the heart of the siege, Troy: Fall Of A City is retell the story of the 10 year old siege of Troy, which occurred in the 12 or 13th century BC.
The show is a collaboration between the BBC and Netflix, and it looks as though the producers have spared little expense in bringing the grit and glory of antiquity to life. From the below shot, it looks as though the cinematography could be on a par with HBOs glossy sci-fi/western, Westworld.
