Airing tonight on PBS: King Charles III, a filmed version of Mike Barlett's play of the same name, first performed at the Almeida Theatre in London in 2014. The play imagines events after the death of Queen Elizabeth II and the accession of Charles, Prince of Wales. First up: whether the new King should assent to a new law regulating the press. His struggle to decide whether to agree unleashes a constitutional crisis. The film stars the late Tim Pigott-Smith and Oliver Chris as Prince William.
