Greenlit: Time Traveller’s Guide to Tudor England, BBC2
Time Traveller’s Guide to Tudor England (3 x 60′) – Best-selling author Ian Mortimer transports viewers back to Tudor England. He reveals in amazing detail a living, breathing Tudor world. Viewers learn how ordinary Tudor housewives turned plants into medicine; how the middle classes kept themselves clean using linen cloths; how the poor made pottage; how cooks of the rich devised recipes for new ingredients; and how Tudors learned to read and write. The series will also show how people identified and avoided different types of common criminal, how the invention of the brick chimney piece turned Tudor England into a building site, and how Elizabeth’s spy network covered eight countries.
