Here you can bid for a Victoria Cross Heroes DVD "The most democratic and at the same time the most exclusive all orders of chivalry - the most enviable order of the Victoria Cross." Edward VIII (when Prince of Wales) Seventy years after that statement, Edward's great nephew, HRH Prince Charles, introduces the definitive history and a landmark series to commemorate and celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Victoria Cross. It pays fitting tribute to the men who have been awarded the highest medal for gallantry. As President of the VC and GC Association and with the Royal Family's long connection with Britain's armed forces, the Prince believes the medal has a particular resonance and significance. True courage is something that many aspire to but few achieve. Victoria Cross Heroes is the story of ordinary people who performed extraordinary acts of bravery. Those who receive the VC, for valour as the inscription states so simply and so powerfully, are real heroes who more often that not sacrificed their lives in order that others survived. Today there are only 12 living holders and their numbers are dwindling. This three x one hour series has been made by Empire Media Productions for channel five. It tells the incredible stories of some of the 1351 winners from the Crimea through to Iraq and the great conflicts of the 20th century in which British and Commonwealth forces have been involved. 'Victoria Cross Heroes' is a high-end specialist factual programme, made by experienced history programme makers. Its budget and ambition bring high production and editorial values to the screen. Each programme is based around the stories of 2 or 3 main VC holders and their actions, while the journey of the medal's evolution is told through fascinating archive materials and well structured interviews.
