This review is from: Henry VIII: Mind of a Tyrant [DVD]  (DVD)
A truly remarkable presentation of a fascinating period of English history. David Starkey's commentary is beautifully composed and presented and the historical facts are researched and accurate historical facts and not the latest in "politically correct" updates. Full credit, too, to the camera script, the shots being right up to the mark. One comment to Dr Starkey: Why leave out any reference to Katherine Parr, Henry's last, and surviving spouse? She was a remarkable women (as well as being my second cousin 13 generations removed!)who probably understood and controlled Henry better than all the others put together! At least she survived............... Nevertheless, a must-buy recommendation is rightfully and fully deserved.
