From the constitutional crisis that saw his brother Edward VIII abdicate to marry Wallis Simpson, King George VI story is that of the reluctant King whose struggle to overcome his shyness and speech impediment has captivated the film-going public. King George VI: The Man Behind the King s Speech is the definitive story of the man who saw his duty as overcoming his own failings for the sake of his nation. Featuring original footage of King George VI reign, including the King s Coronation speech and state visits, this unique documentary blends the past with the future and explains the story behind the award winning film, The King s Speech. Featuring contributions from the films director, TOM HOOPER and its star COLIN FIRTH and an in-depth interview with MARK LOGUE, the grandson of the King s speech therapist Lionel Logue. An extensive overview of King George and his reign is provided by PETER CONRADI, the author of The King s Speech book, and ITN News Royal Correspondent, TIM EWART, who will be anchoring the television coverage of the future Royal Wedding for ITN. King George VI: The Man Behind the King s Speech is the true story of an introvert and humble man whom events and circumstances made him an inspiration for the British nation during their war with Hitler's Germany and is an essential purchase for anyone wanting an insight into the life and times of King George VI, and why the story of his speech impediment helped shaped the reputation of one of Britain s most unlikeliest hero kings. Bonus featurettes include: King George VI Unveils A Statue of King George V, King George VI and the Royal Family in South Africa and The Christening of Prince Charles.

A worthy companion to the recent Oscar winning movie "The King's Speech".It gave a thoroughly interesting account of King George VI and showed how loved and respected he was by the British public and the world.It was unfortunate that the heavy burden of being King contributed to his premature death.

Has always been my favourite monarch, bless his brave and beautiful heart. Just watching this fragile man putting his very life on the line for his country and all because of his worthless brother is heart wrenching. He had had a lot of ridicule and impatience from his father and brother but he earned nothing but love, gratitude and respect from his people. He will go down in history as one of our very best and I'm delighted that with "The King's Speech" and with this DVD he is finally receiving his long due accolades in the rest of the world. I recommend this disk.

This DVD is more to explain some of the questions that might be asked from people who watch the film the King's Speech staring the actor Colin Firth, this DVD is more in the form of a documentary with original film and interviews from the people involved in the late king's life.
