Lucy Worsley investigates major chapters in British History. She looks at the witch trials, the Black death, the madness of King George III, and the princes in the tower. She explores the contemporary perspective and looks at gender politics, class inequality, mental health, and children to give us a better understanding of the past. Starring Lucy Worsley, Wendy Seager, and Ryan Pirie.
I enjoy Worsley’s shows; she has a great sense of humor, and her love of history shines through. She looks back at history with the information we now know to give us a new perspective of what happened and how it happened with an understanding of the times. She interviews those that have studied the events, and those interviews are often interspersed with reenactments of drama. This series is worth a watch.
