Did Richard III Change History?

Prue Batten in her blog post “Spinning Facts to Make Fiction” asks a very valid question:
Who of us was there at the time?
E.g. over 500 years ago, when King Richard III was buried or at whatever other historic event one researches.
Though whatever exact elements we find out about history, it still remains ‘story’ what we make of those facts.
And with the combination of fact and fiction that is exactly the point, where a film comes in and can combine the facts to a gripping ‘story’.
Sign our petition to show your interest in a film being made and telling the story of King Richard III.
Thank you for your support with the film-petition!

In our combined efforts for the film about King Richard III, we are now 1550 signers of the petition
and that shows that the interest in the project is strong and the King Richard III topic worth showing in a film & movie version.

As we again have accumulated a large amount of unconfirmed signatures (almost 300 right now), we will send out new confirmation mails to all unconfirmed signers tomorrow.

Only about a handful of those unconfirmed signers have entered invalid mail addresses, but as we are not allowed to give feedback to wrong/corrected mail addresses, even when the error in the mail address is quite obvious, please check your spam/trash-folder and if you did not get a response for your signature from us, please try to sign again.
(The Petition software checks double entries, so double signing is prevented!)
Thank you for all your help and support!
