By The Sword Divided: Episode 1. Gather Ye Rosebuds (1983)

A BBC costume drama series in ten episodes from 1983, set in England during the period of the great rebellion and civil war. Lovely theme music - bit of tv nostalgia - which reminds me the series the Pretenders about the Monmouth Rebellion must be out by now.

My Dad was in this back when he was a member of Thomas Appleyard's Yepmanry of Foot. One of the later episodes has them building a set of earthworks before they get bombarded by Parliamentarian besiegers, can point him out clearly.
