A look at the life of the 17th-century military and political leader, following him as he challenges Charles I in the English Civil War, and ultimately orders the king's execution. Plus, the programme meets a bunch of oddly named Puritan soldiers, and the great writers Shakespeare and Milton square up for a word battle.
