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.
There wasn't a lot of substance to this, in one episode they are in America chasing down some letter
in the city of Charleston.. who cares!!?? why??!!!
The letter is some American ancestor, again why who cares. I didn't buy a Historical Documentary about the tower of London
to watch Americans go to the south! I am an American-I see them all the time.
The only reason why I bought this was to get a comprehensive overview of the tower
They mention that William the conquer built it (is that right? I learned Nothing!) and that is something I would like
to know-how long was it someone's house? How long did it take to build-why was it built where it was built, those kind of things.
Another episode they talk about the famous Jewels that was pretty interesting, but than they go on and on
about Colonel Blood, and the next thing you know once again they are no longer in the Tower of London, but here
there everywhere. Lots of bad reenactments- its choppy there is nothing snuggly about it.
No feeling of sinking into stone cold knowledge...just B.S boring afternoon filler type narration
it really sucks

I was very interested to watch this video on netflix. However it was unwatchable. The sound of the trumpets and keyboards drown out the narrator. Read morePublished on June 9, 2012 by Stacey Aspen
This could have been an excellent documentary, but instead it is garbage due almost solely to the horrendous sound editing and mixing. Read morePublished on March 26, 2012 by TravelNut101
