How To Get Ahead - At Medieval Court
Tuesday 26th May, 3am BST
Writer, broadcaster and Newsnight arts correspondent Stephen Smith looks back at the Medieval Age to find out what it took to get ahead at the court of Richard II. Richard presided over the first truly sophisticated and artistic court in England. Painters, sculptors, poets, tailors, weavers and builders flocked to court to make their fortunes. But these were dangerous times. Being close to Richard brought many a courtier to a sticky end.
Featuring David Tennant and the late Clarissa Dickson Wright.
For those who aren't night owls, the programme will be available on BBC iPlayer for 30 days after broadcast.
