The Tudor Eye

To accompany BBC Two's dramatisation of Hilary Mantel’s Wolf Hall, tonight BBC Two screens Holbein: Eye of the Tudors - A Culture Show Special. As court painter to Henry VIII, Hans Holbein painted most of the major players of the age. Shown here is his portrait of one of Henry's wives: Anne of Cleves, now in the Musée du Louvre. The programme is directed and presented by that tedious know-it-all Waldemar Januszczak. Did you know that Henry VIII's codpiece was full of sawdust? Find out more tonight at 9pm (CLICK).
