Last Days of Anne Boleyn

Anne Boleyn's sudden and violent downfall has captivated and fiercely divided historians, writers and amateur enthusiasts for centuries, thanks to its intoxicating elements of romance, power, sex, religion and political intrigue. But who is this most argued over woman in history, and why did she have to go? This fascinating drama documentary examines the terrific controversy at the heart of her story. Compressed into three paranoid and panic-laden weeks, from Anne's arrest to her death on the scaffold, the film combines dramatic reconstruction with argumentative contributions from highly respected commentators - including Hilary Mantel, David Starkey, Philippa Gregory and Alison Weir, who all have their own distinctive take on Anne's fate. Loved and hated, scorned and respected in equal measure, how much was Anne Boleyn an agent of her own destruction and how much a casualty of the stark sexual politics of the Tudor court?
