Description

“King Richard alone was killed fighting manfully in the thickest press of his enemies.” Fifteenth century England saw the turmoil of a bloody struggle for power between the House of York and the House of Lancaster, known to history as the “Wars of the Roses”. It would culminate in a ferocious encounter on Bosworth Field in 1485, a battle which saw the death of King Richard III. With Henry VII’s victory, so the Tudor dynasty was born. This DVD features spectacular battle reconstructions, dramatised re-enactments and superb computer effects to provide a memorable account of the famous “Wars of the Roses”. Expert comment and analysis comes from Dr David Chandler, who provides detailed insight into the clashes between the White Rose of York and the Red Rose of Lancaster. Narrated by Brian Blessed.
