5.0 out of 5 stars History Comes Alive, 16 Jan. 2004
This review is from: Charles II [VHS] [2003] (VHS Tape)
Rufus Sewell stars as charles II in this lavish adaptation chronicling the life and loves of of the "Merry Monarch" from his last few months in exile from Oliver Cromwells Republican England, to his death. Suported by Rupert Graves as the trechorous Duke of Buckingham, History comes alive in this four hour drama.
When he reclaims his throne after 11 years in exile, charles II is determined to avenge his fathers murder even if it means risking the wrath of his people, who are already furious at their Kings reluctance to banish the heretical catholics from England. Things are not helped when the kings brother James, Duke of York converts to the catholic faith himself, causing uprisings and civil war, and as the the King`s marrige to the Portugues Princess Catherine of Braganza is childless, James is the only heir, forcing the King to a very dificcult decision. Should he abandon the Duke of York in favour of his protestant, and illigitamate son, James Duke of Monmouth? or dissolve parliament and keep the Duke of York as his heir?

5.0 out of 5 stars A Male Dominated Society, 16 Jan. 2004
This review is from: Henry VIII [2003] [VHS] (VHS Tape)
Ray Winstone leads an all star cast in this tale of male dominance and religoius importance.
Henry VIII has been on the throne for fiteen years and his devoted spanish wife Catherine of Aragon (Assumpta Serna)rule a rich and strong England. But behind the happy smiling faces lies a couple demed by tradgedy Henry is becoming impatient with his wife of fifteen years at her inability to porduce a male heir. So when he meets the flighty young Anne Boleyn,(played to perfection by Helena Bonham Carter)his determination for a male heir becomes an obsession convinced anne wil give him an heir he risks the wrath of his peole to divorce his catholic queen and marry his protestant lover, which once again results with only a daughter. The failiure was to cost the young Queen Anne her life. but just as it seems life cant get any better for henry with the birth of a third child, a healthy son with third wife Jane Seymour (Emilia Fox) tradgedy strikes which was to ultimately lead to the downfall and eventual death of the tyrannical monarch.
With an exeptional supporting cast including Mark Strong, Sean Bean, David Suchet, Charles Dance, and the up and coming Emily Blunt as Henrys fifth Queen, Catherine Howard. This tale brings history to life with Henrys determinataion for a male heir, and the belif that only a male monarch could rule England, without bringing the country to destruction.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Right Royal Knockout, 15 Jan. 2004
The lives of George 6th and his consort Queen Elizabeth are brought to life in this stunning adaptation of theire lives. From the moment they first meet to the tragic and early death of the king.
Juliet Aubrey is first class as the late Queen Mother, while James Wilby is wonderfull as her adoring and devoted husband, and popular monarch.
The story if not a little unaccurate in the sense of theire engagemnet and the feelings with which they project to the family at the time of Edward the 8ths abdication givs a stunning portrayal of devoted couple were to one another and gives meaning to to the term the "Happy Couple"
