Megashare 1066 (2011)
October 14th, is the most famous date in English history. It is the year of TWO invasions of England, and in which three huge and bloody pitched battles were fought. The feared Norse king Harald Hardraada ('hard ruler') led a veteran viking invasion army to northern England in mid-September, totally surprising the English- who were then waiting for William to invade on the south coast. Whilst King Harold Godwinson force-marched a hardened mounted/infantry army 190miles north from London to destroy this major and unexpected threat, Hardraada smashed another English army (under earls Edwin and Morcar) at GATE FULFORD, near York, September 20th. Five days later, at STAMFORD BRIDGE, Harold Godwinson in turn totally surprised Hardraada's unsuspecting army, and in a ferocious set-piece battle, the English massacred so many of their foes that they were finally allowed to sail home in just "24 out of 300" longships. At this same time, Duke William of Normandy landed his huge invasion fleet on the south coast of England whilst King Harold celebrated his colossal victory at York. Speeding south 250 miles to engage William's fresh and prepared army, Harold's weary and depleted army dashed to Hastings, where on a cloudy Saturday morning, these two powerful and determined men faced each other in the Battle of Hastings.

Megashare 14 Days of Terror (2013)
Over fourteen days in March 1988, a sequence of traumatic events shook Northern Ireland to its core and shocked the world. But it was also 14 days that compelled one man, Redemptorist priest Fr Alec Reid, to find a way out of the deadly cycle of violence. This BBC Northern Ireland documentary covers the deadly attacks which occurred within a two week period in March 1988. The first was a failed attempt by terrorists to murder citizens in Gibraltar - all three were executed by SAS special forces who had been tipped off by a high-level informer inside the IRA. At their joint funeral back in Belfast, Loyalist paramilitary assassin Michael Stone launched a heroic, single-handed assault on the IRA leadership - killing three men but was caught by police at the scene. At the funeral of another terrorist a few days later, two British peacekeepers accidentally drove into the path of the cortege and were attacked, mutilated and murdered by crazed mourners to satisfy their anti-British, sectarian bloodlust. During this period it seemed as if Northern Ireland was slipping into an all-out civil war.
