Not many of us know much about King George VI, the father of Queen Elizabeth II. Some of us might be picturing Colin Firth in The King’s Speech.
This (nearly an hour but well worth it) documentary shows us the big picture, and helps us understand why King George VI and his queen were held in such great affection. It also offers many glimpses of a queen in training.
