Rakes, Ribaldry & Ribbons

Seeing as Prince Charles and his haggard consort have descended on our humble burg in recent days, this seems like an appropriate documentary to share.

George S. Stuart reads from his marvelous historical monologue 400 Years of English History about the namesakes of the Prince of Wales.

I would love to see the entire DVD of this lecture series as it’s always immensely delightful to see history brought back to life in such a seductively charming, humorous, and vibrantly immediate way.

    Thanks for that. It does bring history to life. Puts us into a bit of context.

  2. Glad you enjoyed it. I could happily listen to Stuart rattle on for hours…
