King Henry, The Tudors

The Tudors, showtimes original series (2007-2010), is now available on Amazon Prime for free and on Netflix. If you have not seen this series, we highly recommended it for it’s beautiful period customs, sets, music and acting. The only downside to this show (for some) are the mature scenes which could have been left out. These are quite common in the first episodes, but get less as the series progresses. It is still a great story on the Tudor Dynasty and mixes historical fact with a bit of fiction.

The Tudors present the rarely dramatized, tumultuous early years of King Henry VIII’s nearly 40-year, omnipotent reign (1509-1547) of England. In addition to his famous female consorts, a 20+ year marriage to Katherine of Aragon and the infamous dalliance with Anne Boleyn, the series delves into Henry’s most notable political relationship and the deconstruction of the Roman Catholic Church in England.

Four seasons are available with about 10-12 shows per season. Your image and understanding of King Henry will be forever changed after watching this series!

About The Celtic Highlander

So, you might be wondering now how did Celtic Radio come to be? What is our inspiration? Celtic Radio was created to bring together a community of listeners, performers and musicians to share and converse in Celtic culture. Our inspiration for this endeavour is the music, but let’s face it, the radio waves and TV are ruled by an endless barrage of top 40 musicians and performers. Listen to your local AM or FM band and chances are you will not find many Celtic music stations, if you find any at all! How then can the devoted musicians that play at the Irish Festivals and Highland Games ever get heard beyond that venue? How can people discover Celtic music if there is no place to listen? Hence was born the idea of a free 24 hour Celtic Radio station available on the World Wide Web for all to enjoy.
