Editorial Reviews

THE FIRST WINDSORS The Royal House of Windsor began with King George V, who in 1917 changed the royal family name from the German sounding Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, to the very English, Windsor. This unique one hour documentary remembers the first Windsors, and features rare colour film of George and his Queen Mary, as well as remarkable footage of a young Princess Elizabeth, born in 1926.   THE KING WHO SAVED THE CROWN This is the inspiring story of the man who unexpectedly became King George VI, after his brother Edward VIII s untimely abdication in 1936. With the support of his wife, Queen Elizabeth, George guided the nation through the dark hours of World War II. Remembered for bringing honour and gentle glory to the crown, he was succeeded by his daughter Elizabeth on February 6th 1952.   CORONATION BRITAIN THE MAKING OF A QUEEN This is the story of how a shy and petite 25-year-old woman was suddenly and unexpectedly thrust into the limelight, instantly becoming the most famous woman in the world: The Queen of England. Elizabeth II became the head of state of a country still reeling from World War II. Crowned on June 2nd 1953, the nation and empire celebrated the beginning of a new Elizabethan age.   THE QUEEN: A MONARCH FOR ALL SEASONS Sixty years after her accession to the throne, Queen Elizabeth II remains the calm centre of a tempestuous age. In celebration of her Diamond Jubilee in 2012, this one hour documentary recalls the major events of her life with rare and original archive film. Her long reign has seen sweeping social change in Britain and across the Commonwealth, yet Elizabeth II remains the figurehead of the British monarchy a symbol of continuity and reliability for our time.

This magnificent set is all about the footage! I just finished DEVOURING the 4 individual dvd's and can't believe the film clips contained in each.

Yes, I am an unabashed Anglophile and yes, tomorrow I will be glued to BBC America all day watching the Diamond Jubilee celebrations on the Thames. My gold standard for the Windsors' stories has been the PBS documentary done years ago. In terms of storytelling, the PBS one is still ahead. However, in terms of film footage and anecdotes, this set is the one to have. The footage is not just in small clips, but pieces that might have comprised an entire movie newsreel. On the Coronation dvd, there is a great clip of the Queen in all of her robes entering Westminster through a special doorway - I guess it impressed me because I've never seen it before.

Overall, this set is meant to frame the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II, so material is selected and presented in a manner which is flattering to her and the Windsor family. The first dvd is about George V and Queen Mary, and the family name change to Windsor. This is my least favorite of the four simply because the narration is rather dry. However, again, the film footage is just incredible. Youngest child, Johnnie, is mentioned only in passing though. The second dvd is about the Queen's immediate family, with emphasis on her father, George VI. This is one of my favorites of the set. I especially loved all of the footage of the King traveling to visit troops during WWII. The Duke and Duchess of Windsor are portrayed as the "bad" Windsors and the whole constitutional threat their relationship cause is just touched upon. Nevertheless, the film footage of "us four" as the King referred to his family is just wonderful.

I got this set as a gift from friends in the UK-I LOVE IT!!!

This set captures Queen Elizabeth II's reign from birth thru the wedding of Prince William & Catherine. It has 4 well documented DVDs that include some outstanding footage from George & Queen Mary and the young Princess (Queen Elizabeth II). The Coronation in 1953, Charles & Princess Diana's wedding, and the latest Royal Wedding. It is a nice walk down the Windsor path, that will please all Monarch Fans and historians.

The Dvd set was Awesome! The Queen 60 Glorious Years gives a complete background of the Royal Family to the present day.It was very informative and well worth the cost. Now the down side!!! I wouldn't recommend buying it from Amazon.com if you're buying it as a collectors item!!! They had to ship it to me twice because of poor packaging and both times it came with the box crushed!!! After the second time they said they couldn't guarantee that it wouldn't be shipped the same way as before(a paper shipping envelope, not a box as I requested)they offered a full or a partial refund!!! At this point I was totally Frustrated and because I wanted the Dvd set I took the partial refund of $7.50 on a $24.99 item!!! They also give me back my shipping cost. Bottom Line DVD set Fantastic!!! Amazon.com shipping not so much :-(

I've lived through all those years and enjoyed the four DVD's, they are excellent. As they are history,they are well worth owning. I was a Royal Air Force fighter pilot flying Spitfires for the last year of the war. I felt there was one incredible omission; while the bombing of London was included, the air Battle of Britain was not. The Battle of Britain when the Royal Air Force defeated the German Luftwaffe that prevented Hitler from invading England, a major turning point (possibly the biggest turning point)in WWII. England at that time stood alone as the last European bastion to hold out against the Nazis.

This must be one of the best documentaries on the Queen's Diamond Jubilee on the market. It is detailed, informative, with beautiful photography.-- truly a treat for an Anglo-fan. The product is worth the price and I would recommend it, without reservation, to anyone who enjoys the occasional escape from daily cares by exchanging our mundane lives for a few hours in the (seemingly) fairytale world of the royal household.

I am so glad I found this on Amazon. I had looked at other random bookstores and the like. The price was perfect and it made for a great gift for those who love the Queen.

This is one of the good collections of Diamond Jubilee memorabilia.
I still find "Monarchy" and "Royal Jewels" more informative and fun.

I think this Commemorative Edition is very interesting. There's lots of pictures and old videos of her grandparents, King GeorgeV and Queen Mary, and her parents King George VI and Queen Elizabeth. I enjoyed all 4 DVDs, very well put together
