Philippa Gregory is one of the UK’s best-selling novelists, whose fiction turns the spotlight on the lives of women at significant moments in history.

Her Tudor series of novels includes The Other Boleyn Girl, which became a successful Hollywood film, and her most recent collection is set during the War of the Roses, England’s epic power struggle between the Houses of Lancaster and York.

BBC1 have turned these novels into a major drama series to air in 2013.
Join Philippa Gregory as she discusses historical fiction and her fascination with the past.
