As the Academy Awards approach, and The King's Speech is thought likely to do quite well, the BBC broadcast a very timely re-showing of the 1999 documentary George VI: The Reluctant King. It was amazing, inspiring stuff and a great story. The story was supported by a tremendous array of contributors (some no longer with us), many of whom participated in the actual events. Only one key witness was missing, and I hope that she didn't find the interpretation of her father's story too inaccurate or distressing.
For me: I thoroughly enjoyed it, BBC at its best. Sadly it doesn't appear to be available on BBC iPlayer, but it's worth keeping an eye open for another showing.
