Elizabeth: Heart of a King

Series 1, episode 3

Historian David Starkey presents the third of four documentaries about the life and times of Elizabeth I, with dramatic reconstructions and visits to historic locations. This edition focuses on what was to be her finest hour - the rout of the Spanish Armada in 1588.
