Lady Jane Grey TV Series

England’s Forgotten Queen: The Life and Death of Lady Jane Grey, a new TV documentary in three parts, will air on 9, 10, and 11 January on BBC Four. The programme is presented by historian Helen Castor, and a handful or so of other experts will appear on the programme, too: I hear that John Guy, Leanda de Lisle, J. Stephan Edwards, James Sharpe, and Anna Whitelock will be there. I will be thrilled to watch this at some point as I was also consulted during the production process, concerning John Dudley. It will be great to see whether any of this went into the story. As I can’t watch BBC Four, I may have to wait for the DVD …

  1. Hoping this will be broadcast in Scotland! (Sometimes there are variations in the schedule).

  2. Unfortunately, John Dudley was a Ming the Merciless lookalike, as someone on Twitter noted, and didn’t come across well. J Stephan Edwards stuck up for him though.
