Tonight's film in this season of adventure films starring Stewart Granger, Sylva Koscina, Christine Kaufmann.

Thomas Stanwood is a 16th-century English soldier of fortune whose primary interests are gold and women. When the Spanish governor of Siena hires him to guard his betrothed, Stanwood soon discovers that the beautiful Orietta is well able to take care of herself.
Stewart Granger is the master swordsman who finds he is required to be an intrepid horse-rider as well in this colourful tale which has as its climax the famous and spectacular horse race still held each year in Siena to this day.

An Imperial story in 13 parts.

For over a century the world's second most populous country was run by a commercial firm with headquarters in the City of London - the East India Company.
Its merchants first went to India in search of exotic spices, but they ended up by supplanting the mighty Mogul dynasty.
The Company built new cities like Calcutta, Madras and Bombay. Young men like Warren Hastings flocked to India to make an easy fortune. Relations between the races were carefree. Inter-marriage was common.
The Company had its own army and fought epic wars to unify the sub-continent. In the hills of Afghanistan, it also suffered one of the worst defeats ever inflicted on a British army. And in 1857, after two and a half centuries, the East India Company was destroyed by the great Mutiny which almost lost Britain her Indian Empire.
Narrated by Robert Hardy.
