Richard III: The King in the Car Park

Last night's Channel 4 documentary Richard III: The King in the Car Park was a bit of a mess, though an enjoyable one. Part of me suspects the programme was originally intended to poke gentle fun at the proceedings and had to change direction suddenly when they found the old boy.

Perhaps Philippa Langley from the Richard III Society was a bit much, but without her drive and obsession the dig would not have taken place.

There are some more conventional videos about the dig on the University of Leicester website and I shall post these over the next few days.

I loved the story...Know the question is where will Richard III's remains be buried? Leicester or York? I've also written a blog, come and have a look>>
