The Female Bare-Knuckle Prizefighters Of Georgian London | Fight Club | Absolute History
- čas přidán 2. 02. 2024
- Actor Sean Bean narrates this four-part documentary, which focuses on the history of one-on-one combat and how people have used organised fighting - to gamble, aid diplomatic relations, settle scores and protect personal honour, for example - throughout the ages. Four eras of fighting are covered in the series - Victorian, Georgian, Elizabethan and Tudor - and each hour-long episode brings to life the duels, the pugilism and the fascination Britain has had with this grim form of entertainment. Witness the rise of female warriors, including Britain's first prizefighter superstar Elizabeth Wilkinson Stokes, plus the impact of Charles Dickens and the evolution of combat rules, marking a transformative era in London's tumultuous past.
