S2E4 - Mehmet and the Wild Boy

It’s late spring in 1726 at Kensington Palace, and the lavish court of King George I is in residence. Meanwhile, Mehmet, the Turkish valet to the King, is having some problems with Peter the Wild Boy, who is kept like a pet for the King’s amusement. A comical cat-and-mouse chase ensues, but perhaps it is the Wild Boy who has some unexpected lessons to teach Mehmet.
