Lucy Worsley explores how the history of three of Britain's founding national events are in fact carefully crafted mythologies. The Wars of the Roses, the Glorious Revolution and the creation of the British Raj are all revealed as carefully-constructed narratives created by the victors at the time and embellished by historians, novelists and film-makers ever since.Throughout the series, Lucy travels across Britain, the Netherlands and India to the palaces, battlefields and bed chambers where these stories were created and reinvented over the years. She also meets up with experts who shed further light on how these legends and mythologies have been woven together to create A Very British History.


America: Facts vs. FictionAmerica: Facts vs. Fiction
AHC, 2013 Cancelled/Ended | History, Documentary

History as we generally know it is full of holes or half-truths, and a mother lode of juicy details have been lost, distorted, covered up or simply ignored along the way. Military Channel's new series, "AMERICA: FACTS VS. FICTION" is on a mission to set the record straight. Hosted by former Naval officer and actor Jamie Kaler (TBS' "My Boys"), "AMERICA: FACTS VS. FICTION" is a wake-up call about the surprising hidden facts behind the most familiar and beloved stories from our nation's and military's past, filling in the blanks, debunking the occasional myth, and exploring why we sometimes get our own history, well, slightly wrong. Examining the past with a fresh perspective, this all-new series reveals that the "story" of America is just that - and far more remarkable than we ever thought.
