Between the reigns of Henry VIII and Elizabeth I, the population of London grew from 50,000 to 200,000-despite the popular spectator sport of watching executions. The program covers the uses of the dungeons in the Tower, quotes from the last words of Thomas More and Anne Boleyn, explains the niceties of the private execution ground on the Tower Green, and shows the changes in London's appearance as Tudor houses and Elizabethan dress and jewelry made their appearance. The program also covers the end of the reign of Charles I, the plague of 1665, and the Great Fire of 1666, which wrote finis to the London of earlier times. The principal illustrations: Lambeth Palace, Tower of London, Tower Green, St. Andrew in Lendershaft, Staple Inn in Holborn, Cheapside Head, Stage Set of Brief Lives, Westminster Hall, Banqueting House in Whitehall, Portrait of James I, A Feast of Bermondsey.
