Now days we think of the Tudor home as an icon of Britishness, timber framed, possibly thatched, a cottage, but these quaint relics of the past, belie the revolution in technology that changed them and us. It was an age of great change and discovery, one place this change was most evident was in the home, domestic life became transformed and with this transformation came risk, from the new techniques used to warm rooms to the exotic foods that filled the table and the radical new remedies introduced to the medicine cabinet. With the help of modern science and historic reference this BBC film sets about investigating just how dangerous life was for a Tudor.
