PBS next month will take viewers back to medieval times with a new episode of NOVA on DVD.
NOVA: Secrets of the Shining Knight will be released Tuesday, Dec. 19. The hourlong program examines the importance of knights’ armor in battle. It does this through examination of the armor’s creation, its strength, and ability to withstand attacks from various weapons.
Not only does it examine all of the noted items, but even takes audiences into a workshop as a pair of blacksmith’s try to recreate armor originally crafted in the ROyal Workshop of King Henry VIII. Once the armor is finished, it is tested to see just how strong knights’ armor really was.
NOVA: Secrets of the Shining Knight will retail for MSRP of $24.99, but can be pre-ordered online now at a reduced price of $19.99 via PBS’ online store. More information on this and other episodes of NOVA is available online now at:
