The opening sequence was shot in Westminster Abbey, London.
From there we moved to St Mary's Church, Putney (not much to see, but historically truly important) and from there to St George's Hill in Weybridge. How ironic that where the Diggers once made camp, rich footballers now play golf!
The next section was shot at Hampton Court, Wolsey's palace which Henry VIII took a shine to and made his own.
How extraordinary that Oliver Cromwell lived here too (absolute power, corrupting absolutely). Quite a contrast from his humble birthplace in Ely.
