So let's make things up to fit the story. The dates were completely wrong but let's say he ate lots of fish.

I like Phillipa, a British eccentric who did a bit of research, raised some cash, dug up a council car park and found a king.

With her dying breathe she will know she achieved her lifes aim. Not many of us can say that.
agreed i think the producers who edited this have done a shit job, they CHOSE to edit it in this bizarre manner

I eat a tin of tuna a day and even though i'm 80 I still get mistaken for a member of One Direction

Also if they are saying he was a queen, then he will have moisturised every day

You have to wonder what the BBC would have done with the same opportunity to exclusively follow the dig. Perhaps Michael Wood or Dan Snow giving us some real historical information instead of the over dramatised style of this one.

The dates were not 'wrong'............there is always a wide span............they cannot date to specific years.

I'm disappointed. Radio Times bills this as a Time Team Special with a photo of Tony Robinson. Never been near Time Team.

Exactly what I said earlier. This C4 programme is shameful and Leicester uni should have vetoed it

Well, I am enjoying this, but keep wishing Professor Sue Black and her team had been put in charge - with Michael Wood introducing it.

Oh my God, this is a shambles but it has been worth it for the gags on here - I've been killing myself laughing and I am actually a Ricardian apologist!

But this whole thing hasn't done Richard III any favours, .. shame.

Yes, he would've been great.

I appreciate that mi'lady is passionate about 'her' Richard, but the balance of this programme seems all skewed.

All joking in this thread aside I can't wait to see the facial reconstruction to see if there is any resemblance to the portrait.

You lot are so negative, this is a great achievement for Phillipa, no one thought it would happen but she stuck with this for years and now its paid off. I am sure through all her studying him, she feels some kind of bond with his story. I think its a great discovery, but then I would say that I studied history for my masters

I am a direct descendant of Edward I (19th great-grandfather)...and my 13th great-grandmother is Elizabeth Woodville who married King Edward IV...does my DNA count at all in this?
