The Shadow of the Tower

Post by boswellbaxter » Thu October 21st, 2010, 3:48 pm

Saw on Tudor Talk that this series from 1972 about the early Tudors is being released on DVD.

Did anyone see this back in 1972?

Ooh, sounds interesting. I was too young at the time and I don't remember it ever being repeated - and in fact had never heard of it.

Hey, I watched this as a young teen and I thought it was great. What I would think now I dunno, but back then it was required viewing. So good to know it has been brought out of mothballs. :D Thanks Boswell.

I hadn't heard of it either until I saw it on TudorTalk. Will have to add it to the collection!
