BBC Radio 3:

The Essay


In this programme, ‘Henry, King of Kings’, Suzannah explores the thesis of her book, 1536: that it was a year of betrayal and injury, from a serious wound in a joust that influenced his health for the rest of his life, to the execution of Anne Boleyn for adultery, following her miscarriage, and later the death of his illegitimate son. Henry ended the year a different and more dangerous man than he had begun it
