Century Of Queen Mother: 100 Years In 100 MinutesDVD
This remarkable portrait digs beneath the surface and presents, for the first time, a balanced account of the life of a powerful and exceptional woman. For a century, she dazzled a nation and the world, set an example for everyone in public life and remained one of the most popular symbols of 20th-century royalty. Presenting a vivid portrait of The Queen Mother, this film traces many aspects of her life, including her love for her husband and daughters, her support for the institution of monarchy, her reaction to the abdication crisis, her animosity towards Mrs. Simpson and Princess Diana, her close bond with Prince Charles and her extravagant lifestyle and love of racing, gardens and fashion. A symbol of courage in the Second World War and an enduring icon of stability, the Queen Mother attracted a loyalty of affection matched only by the Queen herself. Her life spanned a century and her influence indisputably lives on. Presented by Valerie Singleton. This DVD features English subtitles for the deaf and hearing-impaired.
