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:
- 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.
- 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.
- So many good historians have been involved in the programme and you’ll see lots of new faces.
- It’s not just another Anne Boleyn programme, it’s about the whole family.
- It’s about the Boleyns, I’m going to be excited!

By the way, Dr Owen Emmerson and I have just released a book on the Boleyns – cheeky book plug I know! It’s called The Boleyns of Hever Castle and you can find out more at https://getbook.at/boleynhever
