About BBC History Revealed Magazine

Beneath Henry VIII’s outward show of splendour and power lay a man crippled with insecurity and paranoia. Tracy Borman goes behind the scenes at the Tudor court to explore the private side of the Tudor king and discover what day-to-day life in his entourage would have been like. Plus: truths and myths of the Nativity story, Arctic castaway Ada Blackjack, how the Founding Fathers created the United States, the five smells that defined Georgian England, and more.
