Very good documentary following Charles II to Victoria
on 17 March 2009
I'm a big fan of David Starkey, he seems to be able to rivet you to the screen and take through some amazing British history without being patronising.
This third box set of Monarchy follows the history of the restoration of Charles II right up to the early reign of Queen Victoria. Having previously read a lot about the Tudor dynasty, I knew very little about the momentous events following King Charles II, so I was very interested watching Mr Starkey's documentary. I now know a lot more about James II, William and Mary, the good Queen Anne and the Hanoverian dynasty of the four King Georges, William IV and Victoria.
I was fascinated and enthralled all the way through and watched the whole series in one sitting. Very good and I definitely recommend it and also the second series which covers, Richard III through to Lord Protector Cromwell and the restoration of Charles II. Brilliant!
