British History's Biggest Fibs with Lucy Worsley (2017) - TV Show
Lucy Worsley explores how the history of three of Britain's founding national events are in fact carefully crafted mythologies.
The Wars of the Roses, the Glorious Revolution and the creation of the British Raj are all revealed as carefully-constructed narratives created by the victors at the time and embellished by historians, novelists and film-makers ever since.
Throughout the series, Lucy travels across Britain, the Netherlands and India to the palaces, battlefields and bed chambers where these stories were created and reinvented over the years. She also meets up with experts who shed further light on how these legends and mythologies have been woven together to create A Very British History.
Historian Lucy Worsley reveals how some of the biggest moments in British History are actually a concoction of fibs and stories which have been manipulated by whoever was in power at the time.
