Troy: Fall of a City

The oldest story from the West is unsurprisingly one of the most famous. Who hasn’t heard of the Trojan Wars, the Trojan horse and how Helen’s face launched a thousand ships? The BBC spent millions on the series Troy: Fall of a City, only to receive mixed reviews. NEON applauds its ambition and then looks at the myth versus the potential historical reality. There is an argument for historical accuracy, resignation that drama sometimes comes first and a debate about could it be that everything you know about that horse is wrong? And how long could a siege go on for?
