KEN FOLLETT’S DARK AGES
Monday 7.30pm, History
Best-selling author Ken Follett is fascinated with the Dark Ages and set his novels The Pillars Of The Earth and World Without End in this brutal period in history. It was the time of Joan of Arc, when plagues such as the Black Death killed millions. The Catholic Church ruled and those who spoke out against it were burned at the stake for heresy. Follett hosts the two-part series; his account of the time is lively and detailed.
