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.Read more ›
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.

Very disappointing. Ridiculous music, ridiculous "old timey newsreel-style" narration. Most of the narration and visuals focus on the Queen's horrible family rather than... Read morePublished 18 months ago by keeponkeepingon
