Queen's Palaces Previous Broadcasts

Windsor Castle (Episode #102Z)

KQED 9: Thu, Nov 20, 2014 -- 9:37 PM

From the bowels of the Castle to the heights of the battlements, Fiona encounters all manner of royal treasures - from the musket ball that killed a naval hero to table decorations in gold and silver and encrusted with jewels; from the triple-headed portrait of a king who lost his head to Queen Mary's Dolls' House with running taps, and a secret garden hidden in a drawer. All of this was almost lost in the disastrous fire of 1992.

Holyrood House (Episode #103Z)

KQED 9: Thu, Nov 13, 2014 -- 9:37 PM

It is also one of Britain's smallest palaces and yet events at Holyrood have determined the fate of three countries - England, France and Scotland. It was also the last place where a royal prince challenged the right of an English king to sit on the throne. Fiona Bruce discovers remarkable objects from the Royal Collection that are intimately bound to the Palace's turbulent history - from the spectacular Darnley Jewel with its many hidden messages to the cat-and-mouse needlework of a doomed queen.

Buckingham Palace (Episode #101Z)

KQED 9: Thu, Nov 6, 2014 -- 9:37 PM

Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle and the Palace of Holyroodhouse - these buildings have been part of British royal history for hundreds of years. The Queen's Palaces showcases the art and architecture, the interior decoration and the treasures stored inside these fabulous buildings and reveals the surprising and fascinating stories behind them. As well as telling the story of the building's creation, as Fiona Bruce walks around the rooms and corridors she captures the stories and histories of works of art and fine objects, so that each film marries the chronology of history and the pure delight of a walk around a beautiful interior.
