London: Royal City (#101H) Duration: 56:46 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.

The Queen's Possessions (#103H) Duration: 56:16 STEREO TVG

The Queen has some surprising possessions. Among them are Westminster Abbey and the Chapels Royal. These are "peculiars of the crown" -- as are the Channel Islands, where they still call Her Majesty the Duke of Normandy to remind outsiders that they were with William the Conqueror on the winning side at the Battle of Hastings. The queen also owns the Tower of London -- part of a collection of Historic Royal Palaces. Not forgetting the Royal Collection -- to which she has added nearly 150 portraits over the past six decades.

Traveller (#104H) Duration: 56:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

The queen is head of the 16 realms that make up the Commonwealth. In Perth, Western Australia, Queen Elizabeth is on tour before opening the Heads of Government Meeting, which is especially important for the monarchy. The Commonwealth countries are being asked to change the rules of succession so that a first-born girl may inherit the crown. If it's approved, it will be the single biggest change to the monarchy for centuries. At the age of 85, the queen remains undaunted by long-haul travel -- as this program shows.
