The Diamond Queen DVD Review

The Diamond Queen is available for the first time through BBC Home Video.  To honor the 60 years the Queen has ruled the United Kingdom is a fascinating look at her years on the throne narrarated by Andrew Marr.  From the beginning of her reign to present, the BBC traveled with the Queen for a year and a half starting in mid 2010.  For 86 years of age, there is no sign of the Queen slowing down.  This 3 part documentary shows just how much she does in a course of a day and how much the British public loves her now for some 20 years ago, she was not well liked and there was talk of seeing just how important the monarchy really was!  Interviews with the Royal family and historians, this was a fast 3 hours that flew by!  Great stuff!  The extra on this disc is an official video montage of the reign of Queen Elizabeth II.  Highly recommended for any Anglophile!


The video quality is great!  Episodes run approx 30 minutes each.
