Fascinating Recreation of Medieval Life,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tudor Monastery Farm [DVD] (DVD)
I bought this after watching the series on BBC. All of the Farm series -- Victorian, Edwardian, Wartime -- have been interesting and Tudor is no exception. We learn so much of the history of ordinary people, the development of technology, often water-powered, and the nature of life with one pervasive world view governed by the Catholic Church. These videos are in context, not looking ahead to events of the Reformation, and viewers are steeped in the lives that we are watching. The presenters are all terrific and teach history in delightful ways.

You didn't mention it--but I hope you are aware of the original 'Farm' series, titled, ''Tales from the Green Valley'' (set in 1620) with the same original crew, plus extra help throughout, absolutely brilliant. P G Croft UK

Is the Tudor Monastery Christmas episode included in this release?

'fraid not. This is a bone of contention with me. After every 'Farm' series, bar the Edwardian one--the BBC has issued a Christmas special on a seperate DVD, This time, they have issued 'The Tudor Christmas ' special with the previously issued 'Victorian Christmas' one, which any real fan would already have--like me. So the only way to get the 'Tudor' job is to own TWO copies of Victorian Christmas. Bad planning? or cynical exploitation?
