A cogent, well presented, non-dumbed-down documentary.
22 July 2014 | by michael-bondSee all my reviews

Helen Castor knows her subject and presents a straightforward and intelligent chronology without the usual appeal to vicarious empathy which mars so much of TV's portrayal of women in history. The BBC4 series is a BBC Scotland production, which means that it is well-written and presented by an expert in the field, a welcome change from the usual patronising treatment of history on television, which makes a presumption of absolute ignorance and low attention-span in its audience. For those of us who, like me, needed gaps filling in our knowledge of Plantagenet and Tudor English History, or those to whom this is all new, this unfussy presentation by the delightful Ms Castor is thoroughly recommended.
