Britain’s Bloodiest Dynasty - The Plantagenets DVD

Dan Jones’ boyish enthusiasm inspires. It’s great.’ Lucy Mangan - The Guardian

With almost six months to go before Game of Thrones returns…this is just the show to keep you going GQ Magazine

BRITAIN’S MOST notorious and bloody dynasty The Plantagenets were the inspiration for the hugely successful series Game Of Thrones and now the story of this brutal clan is skillfully brought to life in a brand new Channel 5 docu drama, presented by award-winning journalist  and acclaimed historian Dan Jones. Britain’s Bloodiest Dynasty – The Plantagenets comes to DVD courtesy of RLJ Entertainment’s Acorn Label.

Following one of the most shocking periods in British history, this eye-opening historical series brings to life the dynasty who dragged Britain out of the dark ages and into the modern world. Out of the chaos, darkness and violence of the middle ages, one family rose to seize control of England. Generation after generation they ruled the country for more than three hundred years, ruthlessly crushing all competition to become the greatest English dynasty of all time. Britain’s Bloodiest Dynasty – The Plantagenets will be released on DVD as a four-part series on 26 January 2015.

The programme shows history as never seen before, it combines scintillating story-telling from Jones as he delivers his extraordinary new take on one of the most visceral and violent chapters in  British  History, interspersed with drama reconstruction that brings to life a dramatic and visceral time in England’s history. From overbearing fathers and weak sons, to treacherous allies and adulterous wives, bad marriages, cousins at war and best friends turned mortal enemies, we meet extraordinary characters displaying raw human emotions – greed, envy, love and hate. Blood and the pursuit of power are at the heart of every event.
