King cobras are the largest venomous serpents on earth, growing up to 18 feet or over five metres in length, but almost nothing is known about their life in the wild. They are protected throughout India – but there are still more and more clashes with humans every year. Today the species is in greater jeopardy than ever before. Now, a new scientific expedition is setting out to follow the king into the wild for the first time ever, revealing the truth behind the life of an animal we only think we know – and ensure the kings reign over his kingdom.

Tony Robinson takes a 45 mile hike through the beautiful countryside of the Weald in Kent and East Sussex to discover its rich and surprising Tudor heritage.
From the impressively preserved Penshurst Place, where author Philippa Gregory helps Tony relish the fate of the grand Duke of Buckingham at the hands of the young Henry the Eighth, he travels up what used to be secret paths to Hever Castle.
Henry’s saucy courting of the Boleyn girls at Hever comes as perhaps no surprise. But Tony travels on to find out how Henry VIII’s reign brought not just fame and disaster to the women who caught his eye but also wrought huge social, political, and industrial change to the country and especially this area.
Before finishing in the town of Lewes where he can relive one of the more brutal monastic dissolutions, Tony will have uncovered treason in Henry’s court, discovered how the Weald’s iron ore deposits made it the industrial heart of Tudor England and he’ll have seen the ruthless extent of one man’s ambition – Thomas Cromwell.
