Charles I: Killing A King

This series investigates a momentous event in our political history – the trial and execution of King Charles 1; an act that forever changed politics and power in England.

Killing A King tells the story of the most momentous four weeks in our history. It is a story of immense pathos and drama: King Charles I is put on trial and executed by his own subjects; and 6 children lose their beloved, affectionate father. A cabal of extremists has gained control of the country and as they debate whether Charles should live or die, the future of the monarchy itself hangs in the balance.
