A radio portrait of Anne Boleyn drawn from contemporary sources by ALISON PLOWDEN
In her lifetime Anne Boleyn was the 'other woman,' the home-wrecker, the Concubine or, more bluntly, that goggle-eyed woman or Nan Bullen. After her death - at least after her daughter Elizabeth had become Queen of England - Anne took her place in the Protestant hagiology as a wronged and virtuous heroine.
This programme tries to find the real woman - tricky, elusive, defiant, ' wild for to hold though she seems tame.'
Producer richard WORTLEY

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
