Mary Queen of Scots
Mary Queen of Scots lived during one of the most fascinating periods in history. Graham’s epic work paints a unique picture of this controversial woman, showing her to be neither a Catholic martyr nor murdering adulteress, but rather a young woman out of her depth caught up in the sea of ruthless sixteenth-century politics. She relied on her beauty and charm and allowed herself to be a victim of circumstance. When she finally did attempt to control her future, she set in motion the events that would lead her to the executioner’s block, sentenced to die by none other than her cousin, Queen Elizabeth.
Here is the colorful and dramatic life of Mary Queen of Scots and the story of her dramatic downfall.
Roderick Graham was educated at the Royal High School of Edinburgh and Edinburgh University. He has worked in radio and television as a writer, director and producer. He produced the award-winning program Elizabeth for the BBC. Mr. Graham lives in Edinburgh.
"Mary Stuart’s life began with tragedy and ended with tragedy for both the monarch and Scotland. Graham narrates Mary’s short life as a hellish fairy tale, ending with the queen’s grisly death."
