5.0 out of 5 stars DVD Bertie and Elizabeth, 24 Feb. 2011

This review is from: Bertie And Elizabeth [DVD] [2002] (DVD)
If you think the King's Speech was good you haven't seen this yet. It's the whole story of George VI and Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother. As Duke and Duchess of York they begin a quiet family life then the abdication of Edward VIII happens. Life is changed for ever and the stammering George is thrust into the spot light as king of England. With Elizabeth's support (played deliciously by Juliet Aubrey)the couple lead Britain through the last war. Sadly the stress of it all helps to cause George's untimely death in 1952 leaving Elizabeth a widow for the next 50 years.

Brilliantly acted by James Wilby and Juliet Aubrey the entire film is set at Longleat House in Wiltshire (Yes the home of the famous lions) Various state rooms in the house are used to represent Buckingham Palace, Windsor, Holyrood,etc. A stirring cameo performances by Alan Bates as George V and Eileen Atkins as Queen Mary. This television film is a must!

Couldn't agree more with this review! The King's Speech is a very fine movie but, to be honest, this production knocks it for six! I have to confess that it had me in tears quite frequently! Yet again, Juliet Aubrey is unbelievable: she is making quite a habit of it ! This is the real "Royal Love Story," not that dilettante twerp, King Edward VIII and his American "bit of stuff". The cast of this production is quite extraordinary, with no weak links.
