This 1992 documentary, the most watched BBC documentary ever broadcast, is an exceptional portrait of Queen Elizabeth II in the 40th year of her reign. It focuses on the public life of the Queen, highlighting the political role she plays at home and abroad.
I particularly enjoyed the image of the Queen as humorous but at the same time dedicated and serious.
The view of royal events were not entirely new, as we have seen them over the years in other documentaries, but as a comprehensive look at the role and operation of the modern monarchy this is a worthy companion-piece to the 1969 documentary, "The Royal Family", which focused more on the private life of the Royal Family.
