Series produced, directed, wrote and shot series on Thomas Cromwell; the son of a Putney blacksmith who came from nowhere to become Henry VIII’s right-hand man.

 

Historian Tracy Borman explores how Cromwell took back control of the Church in England from the Pope, conspired to execute Anne Boleyn and sees new evidence that shows how he secretly edited a manuscript to keep favour with the King.

 

Tracy follows in Cromwell’s footsteps to explore each stage of his rise and fall, discovering how his brilliance revolutionised the conventions and norms of the Tudor World.
