The Six Wives of Henry VIII

By BFS (The publisher)

Few television series have attracted as much critical and public acclaim as these six triumphant plays, now preserved on video. Written by six different authors, each play is a lavish and authentic dramatisation, produced with style and quality. Binding them together with his magnetic and dignified performance as the mighty monarch is Keith Michell--the definitive Henry VIII.

Your Memories Shared!

I watched this series and was bitten by the Tudor bug! Only 9 years old then, my fascination with Tudor era England has never left me. In school, I would write endless book reports on this era and nearly anyone who played a part in it had my interest. I have it on VHS, dozens of books and with each new one I gasp with excitement. Although I know it will retell me what I have heard many times over it is no less a thrill. Thirty years later, it remains one of my favorite shows I've ever seen. It truly blew me away.
