Tales from the Palaces
Series Description: For the first time, cameras have spent a year with unrestricted access behind the scenes of Britain's Historic Royal Palaces – the backdrop for some of the bloodiest real life power struggles in British history. Now the UK's leading historical restoration team are working to preserve these places for future generations – and they're unveiling historical treasures every step of the way. Discover mysterious marks from the time of the Salem witch trials, hidden in the roof of Kew Palace, and the tangible remains of 'the madness of King George'. And, admire the extraordinary efforts to recreate a complete Tudor feast and the painstaking, delicate repairs of Princess Diana's dresses. Anchored in human stories past and present, this engaging, passionate and often funny series goes behind the scenes into the hidden corners never seen before by the public.
