Description

Six Wives with Lucy Worsley is an ambitious, ground breaking approach to drama & history on television. Historian Lucy Worsley time travels back to the Tudor Court to witness some of the most dramatic moments in the lives of Henry VIII's Six Wives. Combining drama based on eye witness accounts & historical sources with Lucy's own contemporary historical comment, Lucy moves seamlessly from the present to the past, appearing as silent servant. As the drama plays out, Lucy eavesdrops on the events and reports back to the audience. Closely knit and often related to each other, the Tudor court was made up of a small group of powerful families all vying for influence and power over each other. Whilst it was a world run by men and the King had ultimate power, each Queen (as well as their ladies in waiting) found their own unique methods of exerting influence. For the first time, it is these women's stories that Lucy wants to uncover, witness and explore, as well as offering her own take on Henry himself.
