Scott Guy was a good man, a great dad, a salt-of-the-earth farmer who was gunned down
at his front gate for no conceivable reason. His death enthralled us, partly
because it was so inexplicable, but also because there were no obvious suspects.
When police finally arrested someone, public fascination soared -
because the person they claimed killed Scott Guy was his brother-in-law,
colleague and former mate, Ewen Macdonald.
While on the surface a hardworking husband and father of four, it gradually emerged Macdonald had an alter-ego and alternative life of violence and retribution. The police case against him seemed so logical: Ewen Macdonald was aggrieved, anxious and angry -

The Battle of Bosworth has a legendary significance in British history. The last battle fought on English soil until the seventeenth century, and the last occasion that an English king would die on the battlefield, it was also the battle that brought an end to the dynasty of Plantagenet kings who had ruled since 1154, and heralded the birth of the Tudor dynasty.
Yet the story of Bosworth is more than just the result of a few hours bloodshed on the battlefield. It is the culmination of the rise of the House of Tudor, a remarkable story which began fifty years earlier, when a page of Henry V’s ran off with his widow. It is the tale of the turbulent life of Henry Tudor, who, against the odds, rose from relatively humble origins and exile in France to overthrow the deeply unpopular Richard III
