Gunpowder premieres

The show explores the Gunpowder Plot of 1605. It follows Robert Catesby, a 33-year-old Warwickshire gentleman, who masterminded the plot to blow up Parliament and kill reigning British monarch King James I.
The drama will illustrate just why and how the plot was formed – and in particular, the motivation of Catholic Catesby, who had just lost his wife and father and felt like society was punishing him.
Saturdays on BBC One.
