  •  Guest – “" the most famous prisoners of all were the so-called princes in the tower. When king edward iv died in 1483, his sons were locked inside tower for safe-keeping. They mysteriously vanished a short time later and their uncle richard iii usurped the throne. Their skeletal remains were found hidden in the building two centuries later, and exhumed in 1933.". Get it right! This is popular fiction started by tudor propaganda. It has been shown many times that richard iii did [u]not[u] murder the princes! He was not the usurper, henry vii was and organised the deaths of the boys after richard had been betrayed and slain at bosworth. Henry was the principle murderer here, and systematically had most of the rest of their family judicially murdered, leaving only two to be polished off by henry viii. Try reading the daughter of time, published by josephine tey in 1951 just before her death. It may be mystery thriller fiction, but it is a brilliant portrayal of the truth versus popular error, and puts the case of the much maligned richard clearly.”
  •  Guest – “The truth is that nobody knows for sure who was behind it, and nobody ever will.. Because there isn't enough evidence. All you can do is judge the suspects on the evidence that does exist, and the evidence seems to point mostly towards richard. He had the means, and the best motive. Obviously he didn't actually kill them himself, he would have got someone else to do it. Didn't the boys mother agree to marry henry before the battle of bosworth, in anticipation of making him king? She would have been highly unlikely to do that if she didn't already believe that her sons were dead. Why would she betray her young sons in favour of an untested usurper? You sound like you might be someone from that richard iii society, who are trying to rehabilitate his image. But didn't they also claim that richard's bent spine was all tudor propaganda? But that was shown to be true when they dug up the skeleton in the car park -- so the "tudor propaganda" turned out to be reliable in that case.”

> Craig’s review of Tower of London – “A bit of bad weather is good. If you can't visit the Tower of London at night then try and come here when it's wet. And I mean proper wet: getting drenched wet. Rain like grey paint that clears the crowds and shows you what it was like 1,000 years ago when the only visitors were prisoners. There are only three places in London where I genuinely dread the crowds: the… continued”
