This DVD offers video coverage of major monarchy events from the King's Jubilee in 1935, with British narration of the times, to the 2010 marriage of Kate and William. It is quite educational as well as nostalgic seeing the same first-hand coverage that the British people watched on their TV once it was available. You are seeing footage as it was capable of being done in the years of the events, so expect some black and white footage in the earlier segments. The stories begin by explaining why the royal family is now connected to the Windsor name, the first new fact I learned.
SUBTITLES--The programing does have SUBTITLES.
Bonus material includes the King and Queen in Washington, Passing of a Great Monarch, Wm & Kate exiting the Abbey as well as the Buckingham Balcony scene after the wedding. There are 9 text bios of a variety of Windsor monarchy figures. Also a viewer's guide booklet with more bonus to read. The family tree inside the booklet really helped kept the monarchy names, eras, and relationships in their proper place. Very helpful.
If you find the British monarchy interesting, this is a good educational video form of seeing what actually took place at specific moments in history. I also recommend a DVD called "The Royal Wedding" if you want more, cheaply, about the William/Kate wedding. Another outstanding set is "Monarchy Complete Collection" as entertaining as it is educational done in a dramatic mode. "The Windsors From George to Kate" is strictly archival footage with the audio of the film, like stepping back in time and viewing the events from the grandstands, like the British commoners. Lady Di is covered, but not in depth.
