In this episode Eugenia and Gerri talk about the hero! Heroes such as Robin Hood and King Arthur ignite our imagination allowing us to take part in stories where “might” is fought and good wins! Stories such as these have inspired us for thousands of years and television and film have since their invention given us many interpretations of these stories! Eugenia and Gerri talk about the variations over the years and how film and program makers can at time sanitise history and the violence. They discuss how shows such as Game of Thrones are a truer representation of the way history is and not the versions that we see with Robin Hood and King Arthur! Even though the subject matter may be takes a serious bent they don’t talk about it for long because they have three wonderful interviews from such shows with Alfie Allen, Theon Greyjoy from Game of Thrones, Tom Hopper, Sir Percival From Merlin and Mark Ryan from Robin of Sherwood, armour, swords and arrows who could want more? They would like to thank Daniel and Lionel from http://www.supanova.com.au and http://www.lionelmidfordpublicity.com for Tom Hopper and Alfie Allen’s interview and http://www.armageddonexpo.com/nz for Mark Ryan’s interview.
