123 - The Gun Powder Plot

Dave reports on what was possibly the most braizen assassination attempt of all time. Robert Catesby, Guy Fawkes and a rag tag of their Catholic pals plot to blow up the King and the whole of the British parliament in fell swoop. Can they pull it off? Or is there another reason we must "Remember, remember the fifth of November"?
