A BLOODY CROWN - THE EPIC CONFLICT FOR ENGLAND'S THRONE
In the 15th century, medieval England was torn apart by a titanic power struggle between two great rival families – the House of Lancaster and The House of York. The prize for the victor would be the throne of England.
The war raged across the land from 1455 to 1485, with Henry Tudor of the House of Lancaster finally crushing the forces of York and killing their leader Richard III on the field of battle at Bosworth.
Over 2 hours viewing, The Wars Of The Roses tells the whole fascinating story of the epic conflict by using full scale reconstructions and recreations. Graphic animation clearly explains the movements and tactical intentions of each army; while narrated eyewitness accounts from soldiers, statesman, courtiers and scribes add a vivid insight from those who were there.
Respected historians and scholars provide expert analysis and especially shot footage of the battlefields as they are today completes the most ambitious film history of this conflict ever produced.
Narrated by Mike Cooper, who regularly works with the BBC World Service, The History Channel and The National Geographic Channel.
