Very British Romance with Lucy Worsley

(Rochester, NY) – Lucy Worsley delves into the history of romance to uncover the forces shaping our very British happily ever after and how our feelings have been affected by social, political and cultural ideas in this two-part series Very British Romance with Lucy Worsley. It airs Sundays, February 9 and 16, 2020 at 8 p.m. on WXXI-TV.

In episode one, airing February 9, Lucy's romp through 300 years of love's rituals begins with the Georgian age, when the rules of courtship were being rewritten, and women and men made their own romantic choices. Episode two, airing February 16, Lucy journeys into the Victorian way of love in part two of her series on the changing face of British romance. She discovers how medieval chivalry shaped Victorian courtship.
