How Britain changed during the reign of the Tudor and Stuart monarchs. The programme explores the battles that established England as one of the world's leading naval powers and delves into Henry VIII's feud with the Catholic Church, revealing how he tried to silence dissenting voices. Contributors including Helen Mirren and Ben Kingsley also discover how literature from the period sowed the seeds of revolution, and learn why a riot organised from a prison cell laid the foundations for civil war.
