John Guy: Elizabeth: the Forgotten Years

History has pictured Elizabeth I as Gloriana, an icon of strength. But the reality was more complex. In 1583 Elizabeth is 50, past childbearing, and facing her greatest challenges: the Spanish Armada; the execution of Mary, Queen of Scots; and relentless plotting. This gripping portrait of her life and times reveals a woman who is fallible, insecure, and struggling to lead.

John Guy is a Fellow of Clare College, Cambridge. His books include My Heart is My Own: The Life of Mary Queen of Scots, and Tudor England. He appears regularly on BBC radio and television.

Introduced by Dr Natalie Mears, Durham University
