In September 200o, the BBC documentary, A History of Britain, aired in the United Kingdom. This fifteen part series was written and hosted by the super awesome historian, Simon Schama.
The chapter I have linked from this series is entitled, The Body of the Queen, which focuses on two uniquely different women: Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth I and Mary, Queen of Scots.
Part One, Part Two, Part Three, Part Four, Part Five, and Part Six
