Series 1, episode 7
Simon Schama examines the long, tangled relationship between Queen Elizabeth I and her cousin Mary, Queen of Scots. Elizabeth I was one of the country's most intelligent monarchs, ruling a Protestant rogue state in a Catholic world. While she never married, Mary married twice - but it ruined her. A magnet for conspiracy and intrigue, Mary tormented Elizabeth until finally executed for treason, but it was Mary not Elizabeth who gave birth to an heir. Schama asks if it was the politican Elizabeth, or the mother Mary, who won in the end.
