https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/school-radio/music-ks2-heroes-of-troy-1-is-it-love/zrmht39

Synopsis:

The story is told by the Old Soldier, looking back forty years to when he was a bodyguard at the Spartan court...

Paris, prince of Troy, is blown off course and his ships put in at Sparta. Troy is a powerful city and Paris is welcomed by King Menelaus and his beautiful queen, Helen. Paris makes himself at home and his familiarity with Helen gives the Soldier cause for concern.

When Menelaus is called away on business Paris uses the opportunity to declare his love for Helen and persuade her to return with him to Troy. The Soldier watches as Paris smuggles Helen on board his ship and the Trojan fleet ups anchor. The Soldier knows how Menelaus will react when he finds out; he knows it will mean war...and that he will be 'in it up to my neck'.
