The Boleyns: A Scandalous Family airs tonight!

Those of you in the UK, or with access to BBC2, will be able to enjoy watching the first episode of The Boleyns: A Scandalous Family today at 9pm.

I’m so excited about this programme because:

  1. I consulted on it – Unfortunately, due to Covid travel restrictions, I couldn’t take part in the filming, but it was wonderful to be involved remotely and to share my knowledge and research with the production team and researchers.
  2. I know how committed the makers were to peeling back the many layers of myth and history, and trying to tell the real story of the Boleyn family.
  3. So many good historians have been involved in the programme and you’ll see lots of new faces.
  4. It’s not just another Anne Boleyn programme, it’s about the whole family.
  5. It’s about the Boleyns, I’m going to be excited!
