The Story of Britain's Royal Builders and Collectors in nine films
Told by Huw Wheldon
This series - BBC Television's major contribution to Silver Jubilee Year - tells the story of British monarchs through the palaces, paintings and precious objects of all kinds that they have left behind. BBC cameras were given unprecedented access to the entire Royal Collection, much of which has never been filmed before. Many state occasions were filmed for the first time, and members of the Royal Family take part throughout the series.
In this first programme Sir Huw Wheldon looks at the heritage of the greatest of the medieval kings. Warriors, lawgivers and defenders of the Church, they left their mark in great castles and splendid abbeys; in glowing manuscripts; in bronze and gold and precious stones.
