Henry VIII'S Lost Palaces: A Time Team Special

Monday 13 April at 7:30pm on C4

Tony Robinson and the Team mark the 500th anniversary of Henry VIII’s accession to the throne. In a spectacular and sumptuous film, they discover Henry the architect, designer, sportsman, devout Churchman and European statesman, far from his bad-tempered, murderous and overweight image. He was the most prolific, and probably the most demanding and talented, palace builder in the history of this nation. As Tony tracks the progress of Henry’s great building works, so the story of the man’s life comes into focus: his loves and losses, fears and faith.
