I finally got round to uploading part 2, link to part 1 here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IACDcwUKpRc
A few more corrections I have to add:
- I state in the video that Charles addresses the crowd at his execution. I should have pointed out that he actually only gave his speech to the people present on the scaffold, mainly the Colonel of the guard.
- I state that there were 120 judges at the King's trial. No idea where I got that from, it was actually 135 of which only 68 turned up and only 59 signed the warrant.
- I should have also pointed out that witnesses at the trial gave their evidence in the Painted Chamber, elsewhere in Westminster. Charles had no way of hearing their evidence nor of questioning the witnesses.
- There are one or two spelling mistakes, namely at 1:49 I misspelled 'favourable', also I might have spelt Alec Guinness' surname wrong a few times
