Hampton Court: Back by popular demand
After the success of Hampton Court at Christmas, Lion returns to Channel 5 with a two-part series in partnership with Historic Royal Palaces – Hampton Court: Behind Closed Doors. With privileged behind the scenes access, we follow the guides, gardeners and curators as they keep Henry VIII’s magnificent country retreat up and running in the present day. We discover the last surviving initials of Henry and his wife Anne Boleyn after he tried to have every mark of her ripped from the palace, track down the elusive royal deer in the vast parklands, and meet George, the first rare breed Shire horse foal to be born at Hampton Court in a generation. Over a million viewers enjoyed the first episode this week.
