THE PLOT THUS FAR
Standing guard over the city of London for nearly 1,000 years, the formidable Tower of London has been a royal castle, a prison, a place of execution and torture, an armory and the Royal Mint. This program unlocks the doors to secret rooms, talks to the people who do the jobs no one sees and reveals some surprising facts about one of England’s most famous icons.
WHAT WE THOUGHT
“Secrets of the Tower of London” is a quick historic tour through the Tower of London. Honestly, the same information is available on its Wikipedia page. That being said, there’s something for being able to see it directly. Anglophiles will dig it, but others will want to pass it over. Still, it works for me.
The DVD comes with no special features. The A/V Quality is on par with past PBS releases. Still, I wish the dialogue carried over on the Dolby track better. It’s a nitpick, but it still sticks out for me. In the end, I’d recommend a purchase.
