Description

The Royal family has had many instances of unexplained illnesses and premature death during it's history - George III's 'madness', the downfall of Mary Queen of Scots and Rasputin bringing down the Russian throne, can all be linked back to Queen Victoria.

This programme explores how, in trying to preserve the bloodline, the monarchy may have spread genetic disease far and wide - from Porphyria wreaking havoc with British royals to Haemophilia finding its way from Buckingham Palace, all the way to Moscow.
