BIRTH OF A NATION by Julian Mitchell

The Last Kingdom is based on historical events that took place around 800 AD, when the Vikings were seeking to overthrow the Saxons in England. But not just pillage - to put down roots in areas called Wessex and Mercia.

Tim Palmer shared duties with two other DOP's and ended up shooting episodes 1, 2, 5 and 6. DOP Sergio Delgado shot episodes 3, 4, 7 and 8. The final episodes 9 and 10 were shot by DOP Ashley Rowe and stills were by Joe Alblas.
