"Monarchy Series 1, 2 and 3":
History on TV has become big business and eminent historian Dr. David Starkey is considered by many to be the jewel in its crown. In the "Monarchy" series, Starkey provides an in-depth examination of Europe's oldest surviving political institution and its relationship with the English people, Parliament, laws and land throughout history. It is, however, more than just the biographies of the royals of England--the knowledgeable presenter uses his unique and engaging gift as a communicator to bring the colourful characters of these powerful individuals to life. The importance of the rich heritage of the Anglo-Saxon kings is underlined, and among those most heavily featured are Alfred the Great, Canute, Edward the Confessor, William the Conqueror, Henry II, Richard Lionheart, Henry III and Henry VI.
"The Six Wives of Henry VIII":
This David Starkey series focuses on the stories of the women who dominated the King's life and their intimate secrets. It also reveals the deadly intrigues that led to their downfall...
This series tells the story of the woman who reigned England for forty years, Queen Elizabeth I. From a childhood filled with death threats to a father who eventually had her mother killed, Elizabeth survived to make England a power to be reckoned with, and even took on the might of the Spanish Armada.
