Koch Vision Entertainment has released this 2001 production in a two DVD set that is well presented visually, with an outstanding narration by Sean Pertwee --- The Tower is a very entertaining primer on the history of this English landmark --- notice the tabloid style of production here, as The Tower is truly an awe-inspiring piece of work for the viewer to soak up --- as sturdy and affecting as The Tower itself --- the true story of Britain's most notorious past and living history of The Tower of London --- is as good as it gets!

Overal I thought this was a decent mini-series. The filmmaker interwove contemporary and history themes. The three things I would have liked to have seen handled better:
1. More and varied shots of the Crown Jewels.
2. The topic of the Princes in the Tower made a very weak attempt to convey the controversy.
3. Better sound editing. The sound editing was very poor on some episodes.
I watched all the episodes streamed from Netflx and may do so again. I am not sure I would pay $25 for it (the current price) even though the content was good. I would rather wait for a remixed version.
Shame on the company that released this.
