By the Sword Divided 'Restoration'

Who remembers this tv series from the mid 80s? Actually I didn't watch it much - saw the odd episode - this scene of Charles II coming to 'Arnescote' is quite pleasing. It's one of those blow-the-budget sequences that you don't need to know what's going on in the series to be able to enjoy - a bit of historical pageantry that's picturesque in the English countryside. If it's your sort of thing - there is the whole series up on youtube. Wiki on the series

I was aware of it but never watched it either. Great theme tune though!
