History through Religion

Sarah Dunant finds religion a powerful lens for a fresh look at history bringing into focus an episode like the Babington plot against Queen Elizabeth the First much more sharply than occurs in traditional Tudor soap opera.
Correction: the reference to Thomas Babington should be to Sir Anthony Babington.
Producer: Sheila Cook.
