Get ready to visit the execution of Mary, Queen of Scots as we tag along with CBS reporters. Listen in to interviews of the key players to learn about her past, her family lineage, and how she came to be in her situation. Reporters speculate whether Mary will ask Queen Elizabeth for a pardon, or not. A review of her earlier trial, and the political and legal issues that she faces. Charges include murder, and treason. Did she conspire to lead the Spanish armada to invade England? Though Queen Elizabeth has held Mary as prisoner, for her protection for the past 18 years, the Protestant people of London feel strongly that Mary is guilty, and are calling for her execution. Those in the Catholic minority may not feel the same, but they don’t want to rock any boats in their community. In the end, Mary goes bravely to her fate.
