BBC2: More Tudors season | Media | guardian.co.uk

“BBC2’s series of programmes focuses on the people at the court during the turbulent Tudor years and includes a look at the controversy surrounding the death of Anne Boleyn in 1536. The Last Days of Anne Boleyn features Booker prize-winning author of Wolf Hall, Hilary Mantel, and other experts and historians.

Following the success of Wolf Hall, Mantel’s fictional biography that charts the rise to power of Thomas Cromwell in the court of Henry VIII which is being adapted for BBC2 later this year, historian Diarmaid MacCulloch will also front a one-off documentary about Henry VIII’s right-hand man, which explores the self-taught Cromwell’s rise and demise.

The often-overlooked Tudor dynasty founder Henry VII is put into the spotlight with expert Thomas Penn telling the story of his 24-year reign, while the ordinary life of Tudor England is brought to life in The Time Traveller’s Guide to Tudor England.” [The Guardian]
