Featured in the UCL takeover: three-weeks of shows presented by University College London societies.

Presented by UCL Comedy Club

King Percival was not a popular man…cruel, tyrannical, responsible for the murder of at least 1 in 8 men. But who could want him dead?

After her controversial exit from prime-time TV over allegations of high treason, historical presenter Lucy Cumber is back on your second-favourite streaming service with her new documentary series ‘History’s Mysteries’. This week she explores the infamous curse of medieval town Little-Frington-on-the-Gripsy and the remarkable disappearance of King Percival.

Join her as we recount his final days on earth and meet the peculiar suspects involved. Was the king’s manservant out for blood? Does the local priest have something to hide? What did the village cook really mean when she said ‘YOU’RE GONNA DIE TONIGHT’? Get ready to uncover the truth of England’s forbidden history.
