Their faith was justified as the relevance of the plays in the second half of the twentieth century was quickly appreciated. Hall explained why they were unpopular during the nineteenth century: it was hoped then that such horrors were past. We know now that this optimism was premature. The Wars of the Roses became the defining production of the fledgling RSC, struggling to create its own identity. According to Richard Pearson, who has documented the productions in his book A Band of Arrogant and United Heroes, the RSC had already made a happy and friendly deal with the BBC to televise a certain amount of productions, so the decision to televise The Wars of the Roses was not difficult. The plays were filmed between 20 November and 18 December at the end of the 1964 season.

The first phase of the Wars of the Roses was fought between Henry VI of Lancaster and Richard, Duke of York. At the Battle of St. Albans in 1455, Henry and his Lancastrian supporters were defeated by Richard. Queen Margaret fled to France and vowed to bring back French mercenaries for her husband. In 1459, Margaret returned to England and defeated Richard’s Yorkist armies at the Battle of Ludlow. Richard fled to Ireland. The next nine years were the most violent. Many of the Lancastrian supporters were defeated and Henry VI was thrown into the Tower of London.

The Wars of the Roses were the civil wars fought in England and Wales between the Yorkist and Lancastrian dynasties between 1455 and 1485

On day one of rehearsals, and in a crowd-pleasing attempt to explain to my company of actors just what it was that we were taking on, I told them that with his early history plays, Shakespeare had invented the box set. Much mirth of course, but actually, this claim is not far wide of the mark.

The Wars of the Roses (1455-1485) was a series of civil wars fought over the throne of England between adherents of the House of Lancaster and the House of York. Both houses were branches of the Plantagenet royal house, tracing their descent from King Edward III. The name "Wars of the Roses" was not used during the time of the wars, but has its origins in the badges associated with the two royal houses, the Red Rose of Lancaster and the White Rose of York. Although the roses were occasionally used as symbols during the wars themselves, most of the participants wore badges associated.
