Arlington, Va. – January 23, 2018 – PBS Distribution has announced that they will be releasing “QUEEN ELIZABETH’S SECRET AGENTS” on DVD and Digital HD. Discover the secret agency that helped Queen Elizabeth I while she was in power for more than 40 years. During a time when Britain and Queen Elizabeth’s realm was divided, unstable, and violent, the world’s first secret service was born. Run by William and Robert Cecil, this father-and-son team had the duty of protecting the Queen and the Country.
Leading historians study the period from different principals’ points of view. They dissect the minds and motivations of key players, to uncover an intricate, covert spy network, revealing how Elizabethan England really was. In three in-depth episodes, the program takes us through the biggest events of Elizabeth’s reign, the entrapment and execution of Mary, Queen of Scots, the capture and escape of catholic fugitive John Gerard and the most infamous terrorist conspiracy in British history, the Gunpowder Plot.
“QUEEN ELIZABETH’S SECRET AGENTS” will be available on DVD February 13, 2018. The program has a run time of approximately 180 minutes and the DVD has an SRP of $24.99. The program will also be available for digital download.
