This week Neil steps into the middle of a brutal family feud - the Wars of the Roses.
The warring family, the Plantagenets, have been described as ‘a race dipped in their own blood. The factions within the family and their unremitting quest for power and the English throne led to a civil-war that ripped England apart for 30 years and left tens of thousands of soldiers dead on battlefields right across the country. With the dead of Westminister Abbey swirling around him, Neil meets the mother whose son, Henry VII, lead England out of the war and began the Tudor dynasty.
