There is plenty of documentary evidence to back up the controversial claims in this account of the final days of the life of the former French leader, Napoleon Bonaparte. Exiled on the island of St Helena following his defeat at Waterloo, Napoleon was still a potential threat to peace in Europe simply by being alive. Not only does this stirring documentary follow Napoleon through his final days, it also retraces the medical investigation that began in 1955 and unlocked the secrets of the mysterious death of this huge historical figure.
