The White Queen
A new epic blockbuster started last night on BBC1 - The White Queen.
The story set during the War of the Roses concerns the lives of three very strong, scheming and powerful women - Elizabeth Woodville, Anne Neville and Margaret Beaufort.
This first episode was very enjoyable to watch but one does need some historical knowledge of the times as this is going to be one very complicated story.
An article in the Radio Times gives a detailed description of the women and the times in which the story is set.
Based on a best selling novel by Philippa Gregory.
Well done BBC.
