These programmes feature modern investigations into history’s most notorious murder cases involving royalty in Russia, Germany, Kenya and Great Britain.

Historians, pathologists, forensic scientists and modern detectives combine to sift through the evidence, look at the facts and reach a conclusion as to the likely culprit or cause of each murder and present day detection techniques feature alongside brand new CGI and specially-staged reconstructions to present the viewer with the latest theories and research.

The programmes are fast-paced, contemporary in feel, informative but above all entertaining as they delve into the background, the people involved and the consequences of each murder.

 

Episode 6: The Duke of Kent

The death of the Duke of Kent - the Queen's uncle - in a plane crash in 1942 has never been fully explained. The mysterious circumstances surrounding the crash and the almost total lack of acknowledgement of it - or him - by the royal family has led to accusations that the Prince has been deliberately airbrushed from history.

Episode 4: The Mad King of Bavaria

King Ludwig of Bavaria was gay, wildly eccentric and built fairy tale castles that today rate as Germany's leading tourist attractions - he was not, it must be said, a conventional man or king. We travel to Bavaria to tell the whole story and explore the version of events which suggests Ludwig was shot and his body dumped in Lake Starnberg. But if so - why?

Episode 1: The Riddle of the Romanovs

In the early hours of 17th July 1918, Tsar Nicholas II of Russia was marched into a cellar of a house in Yekaterinburg and mown down by a Bolshevik firing squad. Along with the Tsar, those who were thought to have died that morning included the Tsarina Alexandra Feodorovna, his son Alexei Nikolaevich and his four daughters, Olga, Tatiana, Maria and Anastasia.
