WCNY presents Season 3 of ‘Victoria’

WCNY presents Season 3 of ‘Victoria’

WCNY, Central New York’s public broadcaster presents “Victoria” Season 3 on Masterpiece Sundays at 9 p.m. beginning Jan. 13 on WCNY-TV.

For viewing information visit wcny.org/wheretowatch.

As Season 3 gets underway, Victoria is pregnant with her sixth child. But she has much else on her mind, chiefly the Revolutions of 1848, when the downtrodden throughout Europe begin agitating for the overthrow of aristocratic rule.

In England, this discontent leads to Chartism, a set of demands for universal male suffrage, the secret ballot, equal representation for voters and other reforms that were considered radical by leading political figures during Victoria’s reign. As with many crusades, passions are aroused on both sides—sometimes violently. At the time, who knew if events might turn out like the French Revolution, which resorted to widespread use of the guillotine?
