Empire Of The Tsars: Romanov Russia With Lucy Worsley

Factual Documentaries, The Open University / 3 x 60' / HD, Airline, Non-Theatric

A BBC Production

Lucy Worsley travels in the footsteps of the Romanovs, the all-powerful dynasty who ruled Russia for more than three centuries. She introduces us to a roll call of extraordinary characters: Peter the Great, the visionary who transformed a country into an empire; Catherine the Great, the minor princess from Germany who became the mightiest woman in the world. And the last tsar, Nicholas II, the loving father and husband who provoked a revolution. This is the story of a glittering family, whose spectacular palaces hide stories of betrayal, scandal, and murder.
