The Story of Britain's Royal Builders and Collectors Told by Huw Wheldon in a series of nine programmes

The Tudors reigned over one of the most remarkable periods of this nation's history. The age was dominated by three outstanding monarchs, Henry VII, Henry VIII, probably the most gifted king ever to sit upon the throne, and Elizabeth I.
Sir Huw Wheldon looks at some of the glories of the Royal Collection: the portraits of Holbein, the miniatures and jewels: and also explores the magnificent Palaces of St James and Hampton Court.

"This is the BBC at its ceremonious best. You cannot seriously fault it." (The Guardian)
"This edition took us from Henry VII to James I, in an hour-long essay without a single dull or pointless picture." (Daily Mail)
(First shown on BBC1)
