Excellent series about the British Monarchy starts from Roman occupation ends with the reign of Queen Victoria. 16 - 50 minute episodes (so pace yourself!) I got a bit lost at times trying to remember which King or Queen was being discussed (are we on Henry III or Henry IV?) and after all the episodes, they were still fighting Catholicism v. Protestantism 200 years after Henry VIII. And it seems that England was at war with France basically all the time. Overall, an interesting series if you enjoy history- gets a bit talky, has some historical reenactment with actors, but it is mainly Starkey walking around and talking.
