Series 1 - Episode 3 The Final Showdown



Documentary drama charting the collapse of Charles I's rule in just 50 tempestuous days. Lisa Hilton relates how, after John Pym spurned Charles I's attempt to bring him onside with a job offer, the king was left with just one option - to arrest Pym and his colleagues, accusing them of high treason. But in his attempt to draw the politician out, the king played right into his enemy's hands, appearing like a tyrant to all of Westminster. Last in the series.
