True courage is something that many aspire to but few achieve. Victoria Cross Heroes is the story of ordinary people who performed extraordinary acts of bravery. Those who receive the VC, for valour as the inscription states so simply and so powerfully, are real heroes who more often that not sacrificed their lives in order that others survived. Today there are only 12 living holders and their numbers are dwindling.

This three x one hour series has been made by Empire Media Productions for channel five. It tells the incredible stories of some of the 1351 winners from the Crimea through to Iraq and the great conflicts of the 20th century in which British and Commonwealth forces have been involved.
