If you have access to Welsh channel S4C then do tune in tomorrow night, Sunday 8th, at 8pm for Y Cymro a Laddodd Richard III (The Welshman Who Killed Richard III). Dr Susan Fern, who spoke to us last month about this very subject, was involved with the filming and it looks like it will be a very interesting programme.

See http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p036c883 and http://www.dailypost.co.uk/whats-on/film-tv/richard-iii-killed-welshman-10392292 for more information.

If you missed Susan's expert talk for the Tudor Society then don't worry, just click here to listen to it now. We will be posting Part 2 on the site very soon.

    The poems and life of Guytor Glyn and Leon Colchi both Welshmen said to be at Bosworth attribute the death of Richard to Welshman Rhys ap Thomas. He also made the claim and recent investigation seems to support his claim. Henry Tudor had a Welsh bodyguard, Welsh supporters, Welsh troops in addition to hired men from Brittany, Flanders and France, as well as English bands. His Welsh bands were closest, it is most likely that they had some part in Richard’s death.
