One of the most famous women of all time, Joan's brief life, spectacular death and mystical visions have no parallel outside mythology. But this programme makes clear how very real she was to the army she led - and to the enemy she drove from Orleans.More
Joan of Arc's story has inspired operas, plays, paintings, films, and an almost endless number of historical works. In this dramatized biography, narrator Valentine Palmer explains her astounding life alongside dramatic performances of key moments. Actress Mary Duddy (Coronation Street and other British TV series) is appropriately impassioned as Joan, while performances from other minor lights of the English stage and screen add color. Although there's nothing groundbreaking about this treatment or approach, fans looking for an introduction to Joan's life could do worse than this well-produced version.

Hearing more of Joan's voice. Slowing down and developing the details. Focusing more on Joan's life and less on the well know events that I learned in high school.
It was a dramatization so there was no one narrator, but there should have been more of a play format. The music was also too loud compartive to the voices.
Disappointment. I love Jean of Arc and her legacy. This story DID NOT do Jean justice.
Interesting history and a great way to learn it.
