The Knights of Malta
The Order of St John is our last direct link with the Crusades. For over nine centuries it has cared for the sick - from the earliest times of the pilgrims to our own day when that ideal is still carried on by the St John Ambulance.
John Julius Norwich teUs the extraordinary story of the Knights of St John. The programme has been filmed on the island ot Rhodes and in Malta, where the great confrontation with the Turks was to have its climax when the Order held off the huge armies of Suleiman the Magnificent in the Siege of 1565 and saved Western Europe for Christianity.
A spectacular programme.
