I'm in Europe this week and was watching some show (caught the last 15 minutes) on the BBC last night where a family acts as commanders in a historical battle - last night it was the Romans v. the British.
They give orders to their troops and the battle unfolds in a computer simulation that was shown on the screen. Very cool.
1. What's the name of the show?
2. Is the computer game available for purchase?

It's called Time Commanders and is a pretty new programme, with only 3 or 4 broadcast so far. As for computer games, well I don't think anything specific has come out, but there is a long history of games like this, right back to Legionnaire on the early Atari machines.
