understanding henry tudor-well almost! i am an avid scholar of the reign of ‘dear harry’,and like to read/see as much as i can about the era.this dvd makes this period easier to understand and,although nothing like the recent tudors televised,it is a good dvd to have as a ‘reference’standby.i do enjoy dr starkeys commentary and feel the explanations he gives,go far enough,without waffling on about too much tudor politics[that would be another dvd of its own]yes, definitly recommended.
