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.
