Editorial Reviews

Her 60 years on the throne make her the second longest-serving sovereign in history, and in 2012 all eyes are on Queen Elizabeth II as Britain marks her Diamond Jubilee. In this fascinating series, veteran newsman Sir Trevor McDonald looks not only at the traditions and institutions surrounding the monarchy, but at the fabric of British life and history.

Format: DVD
This 2 disc DVD set presents a pretty complete and understandable history of Queen Elizabeth II and of England. Both discs total about 4 hours with English subtitles available. Each disc is divided into 2 parts.
Disc 1 has: London Royal City. It shows the beginnings of Elizabeth's reign, her life in the war years and that of her parents. Traditions, Horse guards, state visits to London, changing the Guard, Buckingham Palace are all covered.
And: A history of the Royal Visits. We are shown royal art, the Queen at Derby, what the Queen's calendar is like, the Braemar games, a visit to Liverpool, her longevity and the future of the monarchy.

Disc 2 contains: The queen's possessions showing the Tower of London, Yeoman Warder's history, the Royal Swans, the story of Jersey, the Queen sitting for a hologram portrait and the Ceremony of the Keys.
And: Traveling - The queen's flight, the Royal Yacht, her visit to Australia and the story of the commonwealth and the future of the monarchy

The photography is beautiful. Even the historic black and white films are of very good quality. In a few places the people being interviewed speak so softly, the subtitles are needed The Queen does not speak, except in portions of speeches. She does not give interviews at all. Much of the program is history, but it is all related to the monarchy and her place in that history.
At one point, some clips are repeated and there are the usual talking heads explaining and giving opinions and people relating anecdotes about their experiences with the Queen. Nothing is very personal or revealing. It does take her history up to 2012 and the marriage of Prince William and the decision to change the royal succession.

This is a well done progression of Queen Elizabeth's reign and the history that surrounds her. Those interested in the royal family, history and anglophiles would really enjoy this set.

I first watched this four part sereis on PBS and really liked it a lot. In each episode I learned a lot about what The Queen does and what she is the custodian of. I have known that before she goes on a royal tour, it is thoroughly researched and timed down to the last second. Even though I'm an American, I have the utmost respect for the Queen. I hope she will have a long reign.

Great, but not excellent. Some of the items were repeats of other DVDs. It is a good review of the Queen we all admire, or at least I admire.

It is a very informative, interesting, and enjoyable presentation of The Queen and her role in the UK. Their system of government and her role in it has worked for centuries.

Fantastic series! This was a nicely detailed program with excellent footage and a look at some of the elements of royal life that the other documentaries do not detail.
