Inside the Tower of London
S1 E2 • The Tudor Tower
The latest recruit to join the team of 37 beefeaters begins his career with some testing exams. Chris must learn the extensive history of the Tower by heart, a word-for-word knowledge which he will be tested on by the governor before being let loose alone on the 100,000 visitors who come to the Tower every week. Plus, chief curator Tracy Borman turns her attention to the time of Henry VIII, when the Tower gained its notorious reputation for imprisonment and execution, revealing the history of Anne Boleyn within the walls.
