Lucy Worsley's Royal Myths & Secrets

PBS | 8:00 pm

Royal historian Lucy Worsley returns with three new episodes of this continuing series, in which she revisits three tumultuous periods — the Reformation, Regency Era and Russian Revolution — and fact-checks the lore of each. In tonight's opener, "Henry VIII's Reformation," Worsley explores whether King Henry VIII's wish to divorce Catherine of Aragon and marry Anne Boleyn was the real reason England split from European Catholicism. The series continues through the next two Sunday evenings.
