This is an eight episode BBC TV version of Last of the Mohicans which you can get a perfectly playing copy for like $8 on Amazon (DVD). Eight 45 minute episodes. From 1971. Flintlocks of course.

The Daniel Day Lewis version is pretty top shelf. The film went to great lengths to train the actors in the proper use of the firearms and fighting with tomahawks.

Treat yourself to seven minutes of outstanding filmmaking. The native American actor Wes Studi who plays Magau is a Vietnam veteran.

The movie was filmed in western NC, an area of heartbreaking beauty. You never want to leave.

There's an old BBC series called Sharpe's rifles. Sharpe's etc based on the books.

You'll get plenty of powder, sword pay and history in a very watchable made for British TV show.

Another good series was By the Sword Divided because we are in the pre flintlock era and matchlocks ruled the battlefield. I think there were 20 episodes. English Civil War 1640's. The BBC is replaying this old series now. These images are similar to the series, but are a more recent reenactment done recently in the UK.

Turns out some of this content may be available on YouTube. Quality may vary. I'll be checking it out.

Uhtred of Bebbanburg. The Last Kingdom as seen on Prime. 13 books all of which are rated 5 stars on Amazon. Set before the age of firearms.
