Abstract:

This series unlocks the secrets behind some of Britain's most magnificent buildings, from construction to their impact on a changing society. While fortresses and castles were defense strongholds, palaces have been the residences of bishops and kings as far back as the Romans. For centuries, they have been at the heart of a kingdom's social and political life, reflecting the personalities of the men who built them. Historian Dan Cruickshank decodes the artistic languages of palaces from Renaissance iconography to the perfection of Palladian architecture, introducing the architectural brains behind their design. This film focuses on how Charles I, William III, Mary II, and George VI used neo-classical and baroque style monuments to express their royal prestige--before and after Parliament came to power. A BBC Production.
