Royal Murder Mysteries: The Prince and the Ripper

Take a look into the truth behind the death of the Duke of Kent, who died in a plane crash during World War II, while also learning if King George V was killed by his doctor.

This is a six-part series that goes into some of the Royal Family’s most interesting mysteries throughout history.

Medieval Murder Mysteries: The Princes in the Tower –

Here is another six-part documentary series, but this time focusing on medieval times. Learn about the most shocking royal mysteries of the time period, including Pope Alexander VI’s favourite son in 1497 and King Edward V’s strange disappearance in 1484.

The Pendle Witch Child

Poet laureate Simon Armitage presents a documentary telling the story of Jennet Device – a beggar girl from Lancashire – who served as the star witness in the trial of her mother, brother, sister and neighbours. Because of her, they were hanged.
