The Prince of Wales introduces the stories of some of the 1,355 soldiers awarded the Victoria Cross during the past 150 years through first-hand testimony, archive footage and reconstructions. The first programme charts the history of the medal and features interviews with one of the oldest living recipients, the most recent awardee and the owner of the world's largest private collection of VCs.
