Greedy, ambitious, the scrabble for fame and ownership, from Leicester Uni, the disgusting and callous behaviour of the Queen basically disowning him, the complete way his will was just pushed aside. I could write pages, but this is all so wrong. They didn't need to further despoil his body. They actually admit that to prove he was who he was, all they needed was a tooth and a bit of femur, but no, they had to further despoil his remains. They make me sick to my stomach. This wasn't an episode of Waking the Dead or Silent Witness, he was an anointed king and he was treated with very little respect. About as much as a lab rat. Shame on them all - and yes, as soon as they got what they wanted, Phillipa Langley vanished into the midst of time and they did everything but bury her in the space from which they'd removed King Richard. The flag episode was sickening - and even more sickening when you watch the unholy glee from the University team.

Good for you Dr. Jo for refusing to treat newly discovered remains as being Richard III. She obviously has enough respect for herself and the sciences rather than jumping to conclusions for the sake of TV.

I really enjoy this story and the multiple documentaries resulting from it. It is one of those which will go into the school books of how a dedicated amateur can prove a theory right. I thought that Simon Farnaby, while laughing a little at the Ricardians on a teleconference, was remarkably kind to Phillipa Langley, who came across as rather fanatical and overly emotional. Many viewers seem to think the academics and scientists were too dismissive but I didn't get that sense at all. It is poor scholarship to jump to a conclusion but everyone seemed quite "cautiously optimistic" about the results. Incidentally, the documentary called "Richard III: The New Evidence" is wonderful because a young man with identical scoliosis shows how able Richard would have been.

Funny, aren't they? I gave up on them a while ago as I think they are using a computer to subtitle, rather than a human. It's too bad because many more people could enjoy the video if the subtitles were correct.

Phillipa is definitely obsessed, and occasionally obsessed people end up being right. Without her efforts, he wouldn't have been found. She gets credit for that. Million-to-one shot. Great story. But I agree we shouldn't overly romanticize these historical figures. Medieval power politics was cruel, bloody and ruthless. Murder, torture, intrigue and revenge was the norm. I'd consider Richard III a typical player of the time. Willing to do almost anything to have his power consolidated and his political enemies defeated. Henry VII was no different. But he won, and Richard lost.

I admire her passion for one of England's royal historical figures, but I cannot understand why she is so emotional. I felt quite embarrassed when she walked out of the room crying like it was one of her own relatives lying there. Yes completely get the fascination and the urge to find out what happened to him, but the emotions I cannot connect with or understand. He died 500 odd years ago and she didn't personally know him. Failing to see why she is so upset.

These people who are ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN that Richard wasn't a hunchback, and he didn't kill his nephews, are absolute idiots (the ones who were talking on Skype) - I'm sure they're ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN that Heaven & Hell exists, God exists, etc. - it's the same type of putting blinders on your common sense - turning "belief" into fact, simply because you WANT it to be true, or you've been indoctrinated from birth to believe something is true; yet, in reality, it IS a belief. "If he was a hunchback, how would he EVER put armor over a hunchback?" HE WAS A KING! They would have simply MADE armor to properly fit him, for God's sake (only a common phrase) - use some common sense. And if his nephews just disappeared when the king Richard declared himself king, and the king made absolutely no mention of what happened (in fact, even if he had, but ESPECIALLY if he didn't), and especially if they found two skeletons of young boys (which they did in 1674, near the White Tower - buried together, in the same box) . . . Hell, use some common, fucking sense people! OF COURSE it is MORE than likely that King Richard murdered his two nephews (who were quite beautiful, if their painting was correct). It shows you how horrific some, in fact most, of royalty were. TWO YOUNG BOYS who did absolutely nothing wrong, except being born in line for the throne. It shows Richard as being especially selfish and cutthroat - especially after declaring himself their "protectors". I don't remember hearing of any other Royals who murdered children to be in line for the throne - it's horrific. I remember that Queen Elizabeth I, if the history I learned was correct, was extremely upset with the death of her cousin Mary (who she signed a death warrant for, but, according to what I heard, it was only supposed to be carried out in a specific situation, but her protector just did it right away, which I actually agree she should have been killed asap). But unlike the two boys, Mary had threatened her, was an adult, and actually plotted to have the queen killed, ACTUALLY had her own husband killed, and then MARRIED the murderer even when Elizabeth wrote her a letter strongly urging her to separate herself from the killer - so, she wasn't close to innocent, and this was obviously a very different situation. And the queen STILL named Mary's son as being her successor. So, it ISN'T understandable in any way that King Richard would do such a horrific thing, but history has shown us how cutthroat many of the monarchs were (especially the men, no offence to men) when it came to gaining their own power.

Richard had scoliosis, not a hunchback
Julie W. (18 days ago)
Strange sensation? They had research AND there was an "R" there. What was the reason? I've heard no actual reason for why they'd put an R there - if I couldn't find a reason (for why the R was there), I'd think that was the place to look too. It sounds like whoever put that parking lot there, knew he was there (but perhaps thought the jerk king, as he was known, deserved to stay there - based on the legend - but needed some marker). "Strange sensation" - SMH. And "it doesn't look like the face of a Tyrant." WHAT??!? That is the most ridiculous remark she's ever made on this show (and there are some doozy's). Does Ted Bundy look like a vicious, and especially sadistic serial killer? Does Jeffrey Dahmer look like a VERY sadistic killer & cannibal? Seriously - SMH. Not to mention that the skull won't show you any wrinkles (frown lines), and at 32, it's doubtful his looks and life would have shown on his face yet (or barely). What a stupid statement. Boy, many, or maybe the majority, of the Tudors were really evil. King Henry the VIII certainly was, as was his daughter Mary (Bloody Mary), but not Elizabeth. People who met Richard III probably didn't mention his hunchback because he was king, and they didn't feel like being either killed, or looked at poorly, or all of his clothes helped cover it (King's cape, etc.).
Katha Rina (19 days ago)
This was quite enjoyable But it really bothered me that they were always complaining about how biased the depiction of Richard was based on playwright that wrote plays for his enemy's granddaughter. I mean.. duh. But they were just as biased. The host looks at some theories on a website and is all like "THIS PROVES EVERYTHING" After this much time you can't do anything else than speculate, and claiming things as facts is just so unprofessional. The only way to prove anything would be to exhume the little boys found in the tower. But because that won't be happening anytime soon, one should refrain from stating theories as fact. I, for one, think that it's definitely in the realm of the possible that Richard did kill the boys. Just based on the fact that Henry VI (conveniently died just after deciding battle?) was also killed under his family. He wasn't a child but mentally ill/disabled.

daguard411 (20 days ago)
I really liked this production. I have told my Sons repeatedly that Shakespeare put the withered arm and hunchback in the play simply to make Richard III appear more evil. Yet my question is simple; did they look into who painted the "R", and how they knew it was marking a 500 year old grave of Richard III?

For anyone who questions how a person with a deformed back can fight in armor, just look at me. Due to not sitting up strait when i was a child at the TV after school and on the weekends, I formed a deformed back. I have a hunch and a curve on my upper back/spine. I do however not have trouble lifting objects, or doing anything else. In terms of armor, I fight in a sport called Armored Combat League. We wear real armor and use real weapons from the same time period as Richard III. I am telling you this, because the people who claim that you can not fight in armor with a bad back are wrong. I wear a full suit of about 80 pounds, and I don't have any problems.
Halcyon (12 days ago)
patrick allbright Swim (crawl) regularly and find a good osteopath or physiotherapist to help align your back. There are 2 kinds of scoliosis, functional (muscular) and skeletal. Do all you can to help yourself at this age. Don't carry heavy weights because as your spine is not straight it cannot distribute the stress like a normal spine and you will wear cartilage.
patrick allbright (12 days ago)
21 close to 22. I've been trying recently fix it by sitting up straight as possible and to stand very straight at work, but it takes time, as it does hurt after about 10 minutes.

Gotta love the archaeologist- who knocked a giant hole in the skull- whining that it was inappropriate for Phillipa Langley to place the standard over the box. Maybe get off the high horse if you've irreparably damaged the evidence? It's not like it would have done any harm if the standard temporarily went over the wrong skeleton. Or at least considerably less harm than a shovel to the head.

OGSpaceCadet (27 days ago)
If you're interested, Richard III: The New Evidence, here on yt, is great. They actually found a young man with nearly identical spinal curvature due to scoliosis as Richard, and did some fascinating work with him. He looked normal in clothes, unless you looked very closely and noticed his shoulders weren't perfectly even, and made custom armor, taught him to ride a horse, etc, all the things that Richard would have had to do as a warrior king. It was more interesting to me than even this doc, more of a personal insight.

Shakespeare was an arse-kisser to the Tudors. And just read the comments of mostly frustrated females, jealous at the woman who directed the effort. They wish they were in her place but they just can't hide they are green with envy and most likely are nothing but a bunch of bloody, ugly hags. I hope they die alone. So be it!
Stephen Prince (30 days ago)
The completed reconstruction of Richard's skull shows an uncanny but logical likeness to the portraits of his brother, King Edward IV. This and obviously the DNA match prove without doubt that the body in the car park was Richard III. What I do not buy is that the metal object found in his spine during the excavation was allegedly a Roman nail. How the hell would it get there in the first place? It looked more like a bodkin arrow head of the type used by English archers of the period and a metalurgical examination would prove it one way or another.

Just read an article from last year that the Church of England wasn't allowing more investigations of the supposed Prince's bodies. DNA wasn't done if I read/skimmed the article right. Would be nice to solve that mystery if possible. And all those Richardphiles are in some serious denial or something. Like that black haired lady denying that he was a hunchback when there was his skeleton with the evidence for all to see. If she were American she probably would have voted for trump. And just because somebody writes something nice about you after you are dead like the Phillipa lady said was done about Richard III doesn't mean anything, just look at the trump supporters he could kill and eat his children and they'd ask for the recipe and want him to have his own show on the Food Network. That Phillipa lady really needs to calm down. She's really made up a lot of stuff in her mind.

Steven - That's why you use common sense, and realize what you DO know, and what you don't. She wasn't alive then, everything she "knows" is through a haze of another person's viewpoint (a person, perhaps with very specific loyalties either way, and you also have to remember people are writing about kings - they would want to write nice things about the king when he was alive, and perhaps bad things about him once the new king was in place), for anyone to be absolutely sure of what an old king was like sans actual proof, is really quite ridiculous.

Those berating her for her emotional reaction to finding him are NOT historians... They have no clue what the unlocking of a 500 year old mystery of the past would mean to someone who has made the truth and lessons of history their life's work. If you honestly believe someone unjustly assassinated the character of a good man and you see no meaning or feeling in his redemption.... Good for you I guess... As a huge fangirl of British Mediavil history... Specifically the Tudors.... I LOVED this story... This is my favorite documentary... watched it several times!
