London: Royal City (#101H) Duration: 56:16 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)
London is, indisputably, the capital of Britain's royal life. Here, the young Princess Elizabeth grew up before World War II. Here, she and her sister, Margaret, mingled, incognito, with the joyous crowds on VE Day. It is still the center of a working monarchy. Join presenter Trevor McDonald as he reports on the tradition of Changing the Guard at Buckingham Palace and visits Horseguards to meet the man who is in charge of the troops who guard the queen.
Royal Visit (#102H) Duration: 56:16 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)
The Queen's year is driven by her diary -- and has been since her accession in 1952. See her in Scotland at the Braemar Gathering (which she has attended 70 times) and follow her on a visit to Liverpool -- the sort of regional trip that happens every week but attracts little publicity.
