English Goes Underground

Loading...
"With the Norman invasion, English became a third language in its own country, behind French and Latin. In this program, Melvyn Bragg examines the impact of Old French on the development of English. Manuscripts, tapestries, and dozens of curious etymologies help illustrate a tremendous influx of vocabulary pertaing to romance, chivalry, and, of course, food. The influence of Eleanor of Aquitaine's partronage is heard in works of poets and troubadours as the cult of courtly love flourished in England." --Container.

Location footage and original manuscripts illustrate key figures and events, such as John Wycliffe, the Lollards, and the first English Bible; William Langland's Piers Plowman; Henry V's official letters, the role of the Chancery or the English civil service; William Caxton's printing press; William Tyndale's translation; and the King James Bible."--Container.
