The Wars of the Roses was fought between the houses of York and Lancaster. The period lasted some 30 years and saw the crown change hands seven times. Thousands of people would lose their lives during one of the most violent periods in British history. This documentary drama has been presented by historian Dan Jones.
Jones brought together some very fine actors such as Steffan Boje (Richard, Duke of York), James Oliver Wheatley (Earl of Warwick), Darren Bransford ( Richard III), Tom Durant Pritchard (Edward IV), and Adina Galupa ( Elizabeth Woodville). The four episodes are like watching four mini movies.
Acorn brings this documentary/drama to DVD on December 13th, 2016. The quality of the DVD is excellent and the sights and sounds are wonderful. The approach taken by Jones makes this a must see, and you will be entertained. This will make a wonderful addition to that personal library. With this being the holiday season, 'Britain's Bloody Crown' would also make this account of history a wonderful gift to some special friend. So don't waste any time and pick this one up. Enjoy.
