The story of King George VI and his Queen, Elizabeth, is one of goodness growing into greatness. In a short reign, just 14 years they created an ideal of the British Royal Family. This programme examines the legacy they built, a legacy that lives on in the way that their eldest daughter, Queen Elizabeth II, rules today. The man who would become King was born Prince Albert, the second son of King George V. The prince was shy and crippled by a terrible stammer. His older brother Edward, heir to the throne, was by comparison, charming, witty and adored by the Press and public. The Prince married well, to the daughter of a Scottish aristocrat, and had two daughters, Margaret and Elizabeth. This young family could so easily have become a sideline of Royal history but events were about to overtake them. The story of Edwards s abdication from the throne is a well-known one. But it left Prince Albert in a difficult position. Crippled with shyness, the idea of being so much in the public eye terrified Albert, but he took his place on the throne anyway. Happy pictures of the new Royal Family countered the bad news of World War II. It can be said of some people that they had their time, a moment in history where they excelled and made a difference. King George VI and Queen Elizabeth are good examples of this. They were a good King and Queen but perhaps more importantly, they were the right King and Queen for their time. Includes; additional bonus material of VE Day and a selection of speeches taken from different periods of the Kings reign.

Anyway it still works as an introduction to the theme.
Great little documentary, would reccomend to anyone like me who wanted to know more about the Kings life
I now feel really sure that I'll be able to answer any questions my friends ask me at the cinema and am certain that I'll understand the background as well.
And for those who are stating that it's not about the kings speech problems, but instead about his relationship with the queen mother well what did you expect from a film entitled "King George VI & Elizabeth - A Royal Love Story" there is no false advertising there, and if you're only interested in his speech problems and not the man himself then buy a film entitled "King George VI and His Speech Impediment"
Seriously if you're only interested in him because of that then that just like obsessing over a band for one album they released and have never listened to any of their other music.

Just lovely. He was always my favourite monarch and I bless the woman who loved and cared for him. It is a lovely story and I recommend it.Published on 6 April 2013 by Doreen Langmead
The King's Speech got me interested and the real story shown in this DVD was just as moving. True devotion from a couple who were so good for each other. Heartwarming.Published on 27 May 2011 by Chris M.
Although I have many of the scenes on Discovery or the History Channel, it was great and sometimes touching to know more about them and the times.Published on 19 April 2011 by Ygraine
I'm pleased I purchased this DVD. Understand: there are no "great revelations" here, it's all pretty anodyne and certainly very favourable towards King George and Queen Elizabeth. Read morePublished on 19 Mar. 2011 by Amazon Customer
