Tower Of London, The: The Innocent (BBC-1 1969, James Maxwell)

Period drama The Innocent was set just after the end of the War of the Roses when the King finds that there is a plot to take the crown away from him and that a prisoner in the Tower may have a rightful claim to Kingship.

A pilot from the Drama Playhouse strand for a hoped for series that never emerged.
