The Real White Queen

For those of us who loved "The Tudors," a new series, "The White Queen," is coming to Starz August 10th. Described thus: "Three different yet equally relentless women will scheme, manipulate, and seduce their way onto the English throne." Which sounds like fine Saturday night entertainment to me.

Interested in a little historical grounding of the story of the women at the heart of "The Cousins War"? Philippa Gregory, author of five novels set during the era, as well as The Other Boleyn Girl and numerous other books that have garnered awards and been adapted to the screen, narrates this excellent two-part BBC Series, "The Real White Queen and Her Rivals."  Click on the links below to watch.
