[edit] Information

Bloody Tales Building on the success of 2012’s Bloody Tales of the Tower, this spin-off series features a raft of fresh examinations and insights into some of history’s bloodiest events on an even larger scale and with greater geographical spread. From ancient times to the Second World War, Europe has been soaked in blood and intrigue. In this fascinating new series, Bloody Tales goes beyond the British Isles to seek out the Europe's most grisly history to discover the mysterious true stories behind some of history’s most infamous tales. From East to West, from the UK to Istanbul, join historian Dr Suzannah Lipscomb and presenter Joe Crowley to investigate subjects that include Rome’s famously cruel emperor Caligula and the notoriously violent Vikings. However, proving that nobody does horrible history like the Brits, explore Richard III’s alleged murder of the Princes in The Tower and the gruesome execution of Scottish hero William Wallace. Using re-enactments, revisiting iconic locations and relying upon world-leading experts, can Suzannah and Joe sort fact from myth and rewrite some of history’s greatest stories?
