British presenter and commentator David Dimbleby reveals the seven great ages of British culture, uncovering and exploring over 2000 years of extraordinary artistic achievements. This is the story of British art in the Middle Ages, spanning from the murder of Thomas Becket in 1170 to the death of Richard II in 1400. It was an age defined by worship: whether worship of God, the King, or one's lady love. David Dimbleby looks at the finest creations of the medieval church, like the stained glass of Canterbury Cathedral and the colourful Bury Bible, and is winched 40 feet off the ground to see a rare surviving church Doom close up.

First, Henry VIII and the lavish, gilded tomb in Westminster Abbey he commissioned for his father; the epic Field of Cloth of Gold painting in Hampton Court made to celebrate his diplomatic triumph over the French; and the extraordinary patron-artist relationship he cultivated with Hans Holbein.
