Would like to get it...I'm in the US. Tried your links, did get some sound of an "auction" going on, etc. Local BBC America does not seem to have it scheduled for the evening. I hope there is some way to get it to us later. Thanks

I think the series starts at 9pm. The link works but you have to click off the (red X's) on the adverts.

I am also in the US but I downloaded a software call expat shield which will give you a uk IP address so you can watch the bbc and itv show online on their website (you have to plug in a UK postal code for itv) I watched the first 2 episodes of this show this week it was very interesting.

I've been enjoying this one too. Lucy Worsley is actually quite an engaging narrator/presenter. She gives us her own opinion sometimes also, which can differ slightly to the accepted historical narrative.

Episode-3:
Happy Families: Hanoverians to Windsors:

Duration: 1 hour
In the final episode, Dr Lucy Worsley investigates the medical histories and fraught family dynamics of Queen Victoria and her descendants. She begins and ends with two events which challenged the very survival of the crown and revealed how crucial the physical and mental health of the royal family remained: the sudden death of Princess Charlotte in 1817, and the abdication of Edward VIII over a century later.
