Did King Richard III murder two princes to gain the crown of England?

Watch Who Killed The Princes in the Tower? on BBC Select

In 1483, the twelve-year-old King Edward V and his younger brother were put into the Tower of London by their uncle, Richard. Weeks later, Richard pronounced himself King. The boys were never seen again.

For more than 500 years it has been assumed that Richard killed his nephews to obtain the crown. But this historical documentary asks, is there more to this mystery and has Richard been grossly misrepresented?
