’orrible ’istory: A Lighthearted Look at 400 Years of the British Monarchy
Presented by Houston Public Media’s “Manor of Speaking” cohosts Helen Mann, former vice consul for public affairs for the British Consulate General, Houston; and St. John Flynn, arts and culture director, Houston Public Media
The exhibition Tudors to Windsors: British Royal Portraits from Holbein to Warhol presents a stunning visual display of the royals who have shaped British history for centuries.
Taking a lighthearted, tongue-in-cheek look at this parade of merrie monarchs are two Brits in Houston: St. John Flynn and Helen Mann, whom many Houstonians may remember as commentators on Houston Public Media’s Manor of Speaking, the talkback show that followed episodes of the PBS series Downton Abbey.
Both draw on their own history lessons with great respect and affection for an institution that exemplifies the United Kingdom. Don’t miss the fun!
