A History of Britain by Simon Schama - Series 1 - Burning Convictions


Simon Schama sets out to explain how Britain stopped being a Catholic country in just three generations. Henry VIII's passion for Anne Boleyn set in motion a tidal wave of religious upheaval that would claim the lives of thousands. Although Henry himself remained a Catholic all his life, his son Edward VI, a Protestant by conviction, made sure there would be no going back, despite Bloody Mary's last ditch attempt to hold back the Reformation.
