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.
Yet in the face of unstoppable social change after the First World War he turned out to be a remarkable innovator, creating the House of Windsor, embracing democratic reform and reinventing many of the royal traditions that we know today.
A must watch if you want to understand how the the British Royal Family has come to be what it is now.
