Greenlit: The Last Days of Anne Boleyn, BBC2

The Last Days of Anne Boleyn – The controversy surrounding Anne Boleyn’s death in 1536 is as intriguing today as it ever was. Featuring the Booker Prize-winning author of Wolf Hall, Hilary Mantel and other experts and historians,  this film explores why Henry abandoned Anne to the executioner’s sword. Did Henry’s foreign policy needs lead to the death of Anne or was she really guilty of sleeping around? What part did the dictates of theology, court faction, witchcraft and the attractions of Jane Seymour have to play? Making use of primary sources, the experts pit the arguments against each other to explore their significance and reliability. The result is a fascinating examination of the events that culminated in Anne’s beheading.
