Find My Past Series 2 - Gunpowder Plot

On next week's episode of Find My Past, which airs at 9pm on 6 November 2012 on the Yesterday channel , three people find out how their ancestors were involved in the infamous gunpowder plot to blow up the Houses of Parliament in 1605. Miranda Barran discovers that her ancestor, Robert Catesby, was actually the mastermind behind the gunpowder plot – not Guy Fawkes.

Cordelia Mayfield, a descendant of King James I's spymaster Sir Robert Cecil, discovers how her ancestor uncovered the plot and hunted down the conspirators, including Everard Digby.   The Gunpowder Plot conspirators came to a very nasty end - being hanged, drawn and quartered. Looks like this will be a very exciting episode!
