OMG Phillipa Langley. Get a grip. I commend your amazing find, but this guy was evil. He saw an opening and murdered his nephews, to get to the crown. What a POS!

Where King Richard the Third is buried there was an “R” where he was buried that’s fascinating, whoever put the “R” on the parking space nailed the right exact spot where he was buried. Just wondering whoever put the “R” on the parking space?

These Ricardians are like deluded children who cannot accept the obvious. Richard killed his brother's (the late king's) father-in-law, brother-in-law, closest adviser and his two innocent sons in a desperate bid to secure his own kingship. What the hell are they worshipping? He was so feared and unpopular his army didn't want to fight for him despite heavily outnumbering Henry's rag-tag forces at Bosworth. He had to risk a death or glory charge because he knew that a tactical withdrawal would only delay the inevitable. He fought bravely to his end, that's the best and the most you can say about him. Nevertheless, I do congratulate the Ricardians for raising the money and finding his body, it was a fascinating development.

The lady was portrayed as a bit of a nut as I expect the direction of the documentary was meant to be that she was crazy and barking up the wrong tree. I don't think they expected her to get it right - even if by happy accident.

Idk if you throw a body in a hole for 500 years I'm sure the spine will curve. I don't think a man with a curved spine could have been a soldier. He would have been in so much pain.

RIP John Ashdown-Hill. But that woman seriously needs to chill. Acting like the former king, is her kin.

John Camaney (23 days ago)
Every time you got a lead female scientist doing this kind of a job, or investigation, the whole story becomes a tear and drama filled "telenovela" Can females do a job without pouring all this drama on it? Can they perform anything without losing control of themselves and turning to tears? This video reminds me of another one I watched about a female archaeologist digging in Treblinka, crying and sobbing the whole hour long. At some point the other scientists abandon what they are doing to console the afflicted archaeologist because she lost herself to tears. Unreal! Minute 49:46 was it; can't take this drama anymore. Done!

Not pleased that the guy needed to remind the others that a curved spine does not mean he was a bad person.
This Face Believes You (11 days ago)
Reichieru1 His framing their distress like that was totally unfair. They’re not upset because they think scoliosis equals evil. Whether or not he actually had scoliosis was one of the major pillars in their argument that Richard’s portrayal was mere “Tudor Propaganda”. And that had just crumbled right before their eyes.

The stab wound to the pelvis is more likely to be the first strike taking him off his horse with a sward or the point of a billhook , the other wounds were then subsequent blows to insure his death on the ground

the old guy with the teenagers "curly haired mop top" needs an "adult" hair-cut., he looks ridiculous with that hair ., reminds me of "Buffy" in that old Sebastion Cabot TV series in the '70's about an executive bachelor ("Brian Keith"), and his "man-servant"(Cabot),...who adopts his niece and nephew twins after their parents died or something like that., the little "boy",( "Buffy"?), had the same hair do. :-)

Probably one of the worst attempts of making a history programme ever made. Sentimentalism nonsense of little intellectual import designed to rekindle respect for a thoroughly discredited and corrupt parasitic royal family.

What kind of ninny won't put the flag over the box of bones until DNA confirms the identity? Anyway, head injury, scoliosis, location, etc. I will bet it is Richard III. 1470's wow.

FocusLady2008 (1 month ago)
I really enjoyed this. However, I'm a little bummed that none of them mentioned that two skeletons were found under the stairs in the Tower of London. They were evaluated in the 1930's and where believed to be around the ages of the two lost princes. They were interred so cannot be further examines but a historic account said that Richard had them murdered and buried under the stairs. It's not definitive proof but it's compelling evidence that Richard really did have them murdered.

What, exactly, does a tyrant look like? He doesn't look like a tyrant? Idi Amin was jolly looking as hell, and it didn't help his victims. I also think Philipa was that stunned by the cold, hard, facts being contrary to her long held beliefs; she was just that emotionally invested in her theory being completely correct, must have been a BIG slap in the face.

Researcher and fundraiser Philippa Langley, likely a Ricardian as herself likely (like Richard) a descendant of Edmund of Langley, Duke of York, fourth son of King Edward 3 and Queen Philippa.

David Gillett UK (2 months ago)
Really interesting documentary. The intrigue over the death of the nephews will never really be bottomed out but my own theory is based on how courtiers and politics work. Richard probably wasn't responsible for their disappearance but someone close to him who was more politically scheming and determined to keep Richard on the throne unchallenged (thereby retaining their own position) would have seen to their dispatch.

King Henry viii son Edward was supposed to have had one shoulder a bit higher than the other, he probably had scoliosis.

An interesting documentary, bizarre to see how conveniently events occurred, but the over the top behavior of Philipa is disturbing. Either she is being overly dramatic to keep focus on herself or the show's producers chose to advise her to follow a more sensational script. I really cannot grasp why there is a global, social network of thousands, focused on Richard the 3rd... seriously, those people need to get a life.

Mickey Bitsko (3 months ago)
If you were Joe Commoner you judged "good king" or "bad king" based on what you perceived as the benefits or detriments to your own circumstances. If you were well-fed, prosperous and not taxed overmuch then you have a "good king." What he did or did not do to achieve and maintain his own station wasn't your concern. Killed the Princes? A rope maker in York didn't care. Not only didn't it concern him but he also knew that sort of thing was a standard tool of statecraft. The truth? He had the boys killed. One of them was the rightful King, and the other was at least a witness if not his heir. Richard wasn't the first usurper, nor was he the last, but he had to do what all usurpers have to do: Eliminate the REAL King. So he did. Standard procedure. He was a ruthless warlord. But they all were back then. Again: Nothing new. You have to look at the guy in the context of his times. Even the most beloved Kings would separate you from your head if you looked at them sideways. They all waged war on flimsy pretexts. They all suppressed or killed rivals. I think it likely that the common people viewed him as a good King because, at the very least, he didn't make their lives WORSE. Beyond that he did what he had to do. Nasty stuff.

the 2 boy may have been killed by a man . a boy raping killing homo sicko guarding them . or by friends of one or the other king for future gain .English history is filled with inlaw's killing of each other for the crown.Mary Queen of Scots to note here , nice to see the work done on a king . the last warrior king .... his need to be on the horse to fight better was very cool . the line a horse a horse . my kingdom for a horse . may have been the way of saying . i can win if i had a horse to ride . not , i'm a coward and need to flee . he did not die like he was a baby killer or a coward. he die like a king blessed by God to rule . to bring God's blessing on the kingdom . his body was cursed by God .per 1300 mindset ,so he was evil and not the true servant of God . point i find on this the lack of facts we think we know .this is a big part of world history .20 %of planet speak English .it is a big deal . going back even more in time the gaps are more massive .man wisdom is foolish

The woman archaeologists needs to be fired, she put a huge hole in the skull, then said the bones definitely were not part of the skull, then said she didn’t like Phillipa putting the standard on the box because in all probability it was not Richard III. How many mistakes does someone with such an important job need to make?!? Talk about incompetence...

I've watched this program more than just once, but it just occurred to me that the Tudor propaganda regarding Richard's spine wound up being a major boon in finding his body if you think about it. Imagine how much harder it would be if Richard didn't have that scoliosis--it would have more than likely been much harder and took much longer to identify him, wouldn't it?
Santie Loubser (8 days ago)
People seem to forget that this man, for his own selfish purposes, and in all probability, was a cold-hearted killer of two innocent children. They should have left him in that car park to rot away into oblivion as far as I am concerned. Even afforded the wanker a semi state funeral! What's wrong with you people! Having him excavated, only serves to glorify Ms Langley.

Speaking as a person with mild scoliosis, I've always had a bit of a thing for Richard III. After all those centuries of being vilified and having a car park built over his grave, he's finally going to get a somewhat more fitting resting place!
Ramey Zamora (3 months ago)
The only unpleasant character in this documentary is Jo, the osteologist. First she smashes a big hole in the skull, then she refuses the honor of putting Richard's colors on his remains, then she makes faces when Philipa is overcome with emotion. For those who have comments about Ms Langley, here are her shoes. Step into them. What, you can't? Well then, imagine standing in a hot room having violent physical injuries and brutalities on a human body described to you. Think you won't get faint? Then you're not someone I'd be comfortable around anyway.
Miss Synthetic (27 days ago)
I had tears in my eyes when she smashed that skull. It really offended me.
Lauren T (2 months ago)
Reactions do depend on how someone looks at the case, as she says she sees a man in the table. I'm quite scientific, and I saw a skeleton, and a puzzle, but surely being able to separate emotions from something doesn't make you a bad person, and I don't believe I am a bad person to be around!

What a bautifully produced documentary IThis gives me goosebumps that I from childhood have been brought up by Shakespeare, Tudor and Laurence Olivier versions of Richard the III. There will always be questions unanswered about the princes in the tower, but I have a whole new perspective on King Richard III to the point of joining the society. Truth will out, and hopefully before I pass, the whole truth of Richard;s life will be revealed, through some found document not yet known of the princes in the tower. I salute Phillipa, and love her tenacity , perseverance, intuition and unyielding journey to find truth and justice. The ironic thing of this all is that there is overwhelming evidence of Henry VIII being a tyrant and murderer, more so than that of Richard III thank you so much my friend for posting this documentary I was riveted. my only question, not answered here, was the current royal family reaction, and where Richard now is at rest?, unless he is still within the University jurisdiction, Blessings and thank you for posting this
