With a great interest in history, authentic facts, our Catholic heritage and the little known and well known historical figures, English and Welsh Martyrs and Saints of history we have a great love also for the Catholic Church and the heroic English Martyrs. We are named after an ancient title for England ‘Mary’s Dowry’ which can be traced back to King Edward the Confessor and is rich in the history of England.
Our original docudramas are a blend of costumed portrayals, historical imagery and facts, sacred art, maps, narration and an original score to bring to life these heroic and fascinating people from all Eras.
