The Gunpowder Plot, the fall of Catherine Howard and the Beer Hall Putsch - with Rebecca Rideal

Episode 4,  Nov 11, 2016, 11:09 AM

This week we look at what would have been the single largest terrorist attack on British soil - The Gunpowder Plot; we also consider the demise of Henry VIII's fifth wife, Catherine Howard; and go live to the scene of Hitler's failed coup in Munich, 1923.

I'm also joined by historian Rebecca Rideal to chat about the seventeenth century, anti-Catholic hysteria and ask, was the Party King Charles II a sociopath!?
