King George And Queen Mary The Royals Who Rescued The Monarchy

A two-part portrait of the Queen’s grandparents  who rescued the monarchy from potential disaster.  

Tonight’s film focuses on the king, a man who could not have been a more unlikely modernizer.  

Born and brought up in the Victorian age, he was conservative to his fingertips.

A must watch if you want to understand how the  the British Royal Family has come to be what it is now.
