Mary Queen Of Scots

Broadcast: August 28, 1945
Added: Mar 20 2014

Mary Stuart, who was named Queen of Scotland when she was only six days old, is the last Roman Catholic ruler of Scotland. At the age of 23, the Lord Bothwell arrives in Scotland at the Queen's court, and so begins the love hate relationship between them. She is later imprisoned by her cousin Elizabeth Tudor, the English Queen and her arch adversary. Nineteen years later the life of Mary is to be ended on the scaffold and with her execution the last threat to Elizabeth's throne has been removed. The two Queens with their contrasting personalities make a dramatic counterpoint to history.
