BBC 4 Preview Screening: Charles I and a Nation Divided

Lisa Hilton Chaired by Cassian Harrison

Monday, 1 April 2019

4:00pm

1 hour

St Cross College

£7 - £12.50

Historian Lisa Hilton introduces preview clips from a new three-part BBC documentary she presents on Charles I and the tumultuous period in British history that saw nation divided, history re-written and monarchy and parliament changed forever.

Charles I’s reign saw his three kingdoms plunged into a brutal civil war that would rage for almost a decade and reverberate down the centuries. The three-part documentary combines interviews with dramatic reconstruction, as it follows historian Lisa Hilton on a journey to discover the origins of Charles’ downfall. But was he a victim or a villain?

Hilton is author of several history books, including Elizabeth: Renaissance Prince - A Biography and Queens Consort: England’s Medieval Queens, and historical novels. She also writes psychological thrillers as L S Hilton. The showing will include a question-and-answer session with Hilton, and will be chaired by BBC 4 channel editor Cassian Harrison.
