Tales From the Tower is a stylized documentary from BAFTA award winner Robin Bextor that leads viewers on an illuminating and spooky tour through time in the ancient halls, cells, and torture chambers of the United Kingdom's number one tourist attraction, the famed Tower of London. This ancient tower stands tall to this day, despite having been founded in the year 1066. The Tower has played a significant role in England's history, being the subject of many long and violent sieges by aggressors seeking to win the valuable landmark and shift the balance of power. Over the years, the Tower has taken on many roles, including armory, treasury, menagerie, home of the Royal Mint, and the home of the Crown Jewels of the United Kingdom. However, the Tower is most commonly remembered as a prison, execution site, and place of torture, and this series doesn't shy away from revealing the grotesque equipment utilized for such grisly purposes.
