Dr Sarah Peverley, senior lecturer from the Department of English, has presented a film on the secret spy mission of one of King Henry V’s soldiers for BBC Radio 3’s New Generation Thinkers scheme.
Dr Peverley was one of ten winners of the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) BBC initiative, which is aimed at allowing the brightest academic minds to turn their ideas into fascinating broadcasts.
The new programme in the series looks at Dr Peverley’s investigations into John Hardying, a soldier who was sent on a secret spy mission by Henry V to see if a Scottish invasion was feasible. Henry died before his assessment of the country was complete, but he continued to pursue Henry’s goal.
Watch Dr Peverley talk about what might have motivated Hardying to continue on his mission here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/arts/0/26795237
