Controversial Warwickians

Join Graham Sutherland as he introduces us to some Controversial Warwickians, an assortment of characters who have left their mark on Warwick.

Piers Gaveston: friend or lover of Edward II? And what exactly happened to him in 1312?

Richard Beauchamp, 13th Earl of Warwick, buried in the Beauchamp Chapel: war hero or war criminal?

Captain John Donellan, hanged at Warwick for murder in 1781: but was his trial rigged?

Reverend Arthur Savage Wade, a radical early 19th century vicar: why was he prevented from entering St Nicholas Church?

Frances Evelyn Greville, Countess of Warwick: how did she attempt to force the Royal Family to clear her debts in 1914?

Chief Constable Edward Richard Busk Kemble: why was he accused of running the Warwickshire Constabulary like a Gestapo State in 1941?
