Deadliest Warrior

THE BOX – Fridays from 3 February, 7.30pm

Who is the Deadliest Warrior of all time? Find out in this thrilling series! Each week we examine two groups of the world’s most lethal men in a historical and action-packed narrative. From their weapons, to their armour, even what they had available to eat at the time, Deadliest Warrior will take an in-depth look at the most feared men on the planet. Each episode will culminate by actually pitting the warriors against each other in a computerised battle that will calculate a winner using the latest in CG technology. Some of the great encounters Deadliest Warrior examines include: a crowd thrilling Gladiator versus one of the greatest stealth fighters, the Apache; a Viking, the savage Scandinavian versus a Samurai with his blinding speed and skill; the Pirate, the merciless high seas marauder versus a Knight, the armoured battle tank that crushed infidels underfoot; even the Maori Warrior is examined as he goes head-to-head with a Shaolin Monk.
