A little more palace, a little less Fiona!
on 16 November 2011
Fiona Bruce wrote and presents this series which features the history of Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle and Holyroodhouse. In the most part, an interesting excursion through the three palaces, well researched and nicely photographed. However much of the content is once-over-lightly while the camera lingers lovingly on our presenter; Fiona striding across courtyards and battlements; Fiona gazing up at paintings; Fiona climbing staircases etc etc. Enough, already! That said, it was interesting, and the story of Holyroodhouse and the ill-fated Mary Queen of Scots was particularly well described.
