Little Britain Series 3
In August 1776, a little over a month after the Continental Congress had formally declared independence from Britain, the revolution was on the verge of a sudden and disastrous end. General George Washington found his troops outmanned and outmaneuvered at the Battle of Brooklyn, and it looked like there was no escape. But thanks to a series of desperate rear guard attacks by a single heroic regiment, famously known as the "Immortal 400," Washington was able to evacuate his men, and the nascent Continental Army lived to fight another day.

Matt Lucas and David Walliams have created a host of bizarre characters on a surreal but hilarious tour of the British Isles and its curious inhabitants.
Little is known about Walter of Coventry (fl. 1293) beyond the fact that he was alive during the reign of Edward I and that this substantive historical compilation was prepared either by him or under his direction. Published in two volumes as part of the Rolls Series in 1872 3, it covers the kings of Britain from Brutus to Edward I. Although the overwhelming part of the Latin text is drawn directly from the accounts of Geoffrey of Monmouth, Marianus Scotus and Roger of Howden, inter alia, this is no mere transcript.
