Historian Lucy Worsley introduces the first of three programmes exploring music and the wives of the Georgian kings, today the Duchess Sophia Dorothea of Brunswick and Lüneburg.

The story of the wife of George I is a tragic tale of abuse and political intrigue. The woman who should have been Queen of Great Britain spent more than thirty years, a prisoner in a moated stately home in Northern Germany, and never set foot in the country.

Lucy Worsley recounts her story, juxtaposed with a selection of music linked or associated with the Duchess. Including music by JS Bach, Steffani and Handel.
