Royal his­to­rian Lucy Wors­ley hosts this new one-hour spe­cial, which brings to life the rit­ual and riches of the 12-day Christmas hol­i­day as it was cel­e­brated dur­ing the reign of Eng­land’s King Henry VIII. Wear­ing pe­riod cos­tume, Wors­ley points out how a sur­pris­ing num­ber of con­tem­po­rary yule­tide tra­di­tions — gift-giv­ing, carol-singing and drink­ing mulled wine — have their ori­gins in the Tu­dor pe­riod. She also ex­plains the sig­nif­i­cance of th­ese and other ac­tiv­i­ties, some of which were recre­ated ex­pressly for this spe­cial.
