CHILDREN'S television programme.

Expert and 3 other combatants provided to teach Glima (Viking) wrestling to children. Two authentic fights were demonstrated and filmed on location, a swamp and castle.

The re-enactors were required to repeat parts of the wrestling, in order for the film crew to obtain the shots that were necessary. A Viking fight, demonstrating the Dane axe was also shown. Children were taught how to fight in the Glima style and interacted with the Vikings throughout the filming. In addition skills were shown, including axe throwing.
