For over seven years, screenwriter Philippa Langley worked to prove that King Richard III, killed at nearby Bosworth Field in 1485, was buried beneath a car park in Leicester, England. In 2012, the discovery of the remains was captured on video by Channel 4, the defining event in Langley's new book Richard III: The King in the Car Park. (video)
In the book, Langley seeks to rehabilitate the Richard's reputation, an "obsession" that leads critics to accuse the author of being "in love" with the king. Marilyn Swan of the News Online discusses the book and interviews its author.
