Possibly the beginning of womens rights. Tons of information, interesting facts, some speculation & all in an enjoyable 3 hour (broken into 3 seperate 1 hour episodes, approximately).

An interesting look back, based on the book by historian Helen Castor, at queens of England exercising control, from the medieval era to the Tudor era. Castor presents the story herself, and brings us along to look at several key queens in English history, and how their actions impacted on the country- and how those actions were received by those around them. Informative, though you'll have to keep a scorecard if you're not overly familiar with British history.
