Description

Commemorated annually on November 5th, Guy Fawkes' plan to blow up the Houses of Parliament - immortalised as the Gunpowder Plot - will live forever as one of history's most audacious acts of treason. The murder of newly crowned James I was plotted in 1605 by a group of high-born soldiers of fortune, with Fawkes being entrusted to light the fuse in the Commons' cellar. After an eleventh hour tip-off, the plotters were discovered, tortured and hung. Their actions propelled them into the annals of history and marked the inaugural Bonfire Night. Narrated by Peter Twist
