Summary Who Killed the Princes in the Tower? aims to uncover the truth about Richard III and one of the most infamous episodes in English history. In 1483, the twelve-year-old King Edward V and his younger brother were put into the Tower of London by their uncle, Richard. Weeks later, Richard pronounced himself King. The boys were never seen again. This programme asks who killed the Princes in the Tower?. For more than 500 years it has been assumed that Richard killed his nephews in a craven attempt at glory. But, some say, Richard III was no child-killing monster. Rather, he was the finest King England ever had. Others say nobody killed the princes at all, and they lived anonymously into old age far away from the cut-throat world of the English court. Who Killed the Princes in the Tower? is a BBC history documentary which explores what might have happened, interrogating all the possible culprits, and capturing the debates that rage as fiercely as ever. Fresh and incisive, this film combines compelling personal arguments with the latest evidence to present a coherent and contemporary perspective on an enduring mystery
