The Tales We Tell Episode 9, Part 1: Good Queen Bess

In this episode of The Tales We Tell, Clara Cook is joined by history buff Amy Neal to discuss the many visual representations of Queen Elizabeth I in both film and TV. We examine the history behind the myths of the Virgin Queen and whether different productions have been historically accurate. We ask if film is a gateway for the general public to learning history and how many of the stories that filmmakers explore about Elizabeth are real and how many are part of the famous myths that surround her.
