A History of Britain: Dynasty (BBC Documentary)
Bringing Britain’s rich history to life, Simon Schama’s unique storytelling describes the triumphs and trials of the monarchy, the effects of warring religions, the expansion of the empire and the decline of Britain as a world power. The story begins around 3000 BC and concludes in 2000. Dynasty – 1087-1216. There is no saga more powerful than that of the warring dynasty – domineering father, beautiful, scheming mother and squabbling, murderous sons and daughters, (particularly the nieces). In the years that followed the Norman Conquest, this was the drama played out on the stage of British history.
