Bringing Napoleonic battles to life


A theme park is being planned in honour of French leader Napoleon Bonaparte, almost 200 years after his death. Napoleonland, situated at the site of a famous victory just south of Paris, is set to feature a museum, shops and daily military re-enactments.

Marc Middleton takes part in replaying famous Napoleonic battles with the First Line Infantry Regiment. He spoke to BBC News about his enthusiasm for reliving history and what he thought about the proposed theme park.
