History's Secrets: Secrets of the Virgin Queen
Despite her royal obligation to provide an heir to the throne, Queen Elizabeth never married. Centuries later, unanswered questions still swirl as to the motive behind her decision. Examine the rumours and myths surrounding one of England's most storied monarchs.
Saxon Gold: Finding the Hoard
When an amateur metal-detecting enthusiast discovered the largest Anglo Saxon treasure hoard ever found, his astonishing find shed new light on one of the most mysterious periods of British history.
Saxon Gold: Secrets of Saxon Gold
Where did the gold and garnets come from, why were they buried and who were the mighty Saxon warriors they once belonged to? Explore the secrets and significance of the £3 million Staffordshire hoard as we sift through the precious artefacts to reveal the tales behind the bounty.
Bloody Tales of the Tower
The terrible cries of tortured prisoners have given the Tower of London a particularly grisly place in history. An investigator and a Tudor historian team up to explore the Tower's notorious, blood-splattered past in three programmes. Traitors Discover the contrasting fates of three very different traitors, including the case of the last person killed at the Tower. Executions Being put to death in the Tower could be a messy business, as the botched beheading of the Duke of Monmouth reveals. Scandal! Were Anne Boleyn and Katherine Howard really unfaithful to Henry VIII, or victims of cruel conspiracies that doomed them to death in the Tower?
