The Babington Plot – A Play

Posted By claire on December 7, 2010

On BBC iPlayer at the moment, you can listen to Michael Butt’s documentary style drama about the Babington Plot, the plot to assassinate Elizabeth I and replace her with Mary Queen of Scots. The play was aired on BBC Radio 4 and it really is wonderful as different characters give their take on events, including witness reports of the executions of those involved in the plot.

You can listen to The Afternoon Play “The Babbington Plot” at the BBC iPlayer website – click here. Please listen to it before it is taken off at 3.20pm today.
