A unique documentary about a self-made King

It's like walking around modern London being led by a very knowledgeable tour guide. When something dramatic happens in the commentary, we are shown a dramatically lit London skyscraper. In fact, we are privy to a lot of London at night and dramatic shots of our narrator.

We're teased at the beginning by being told that Henry VII's reign was more incredible than either his son, Henry VIII or Elizabeth I. That's the hook.

I do not think so at all. Or else I didn't catch what the narrator and author of the book by the same title was trying to get across. Granted, Henry VII did some interesting things. But still nothing that will make me want to know even more about him.

His wife is described as chased and fruitful. Seems an oxymoron to me. BUT!! He did love her and they had a good partnership all of their lives.

We are shown the magnificent floor where kings and queens are always crowned. Please remove your shoes. And burial sites that are, well, fit for a king.

This documentary has a very unique look. In a good way to a degree - but it was too much of a good thing. I would have appreciated a whole lot more of the 16th Century versus the 21st.

Another example of the book being better than the film? I do not know.
