Drawings on archive news reels and never-before-seen home movies and photographs, The Prince of Wales reflects back on Her Majesty's 60 year reign - both as Queen and as his own mother.


This BBC programme is to be broadcast on ABC1 at 8:30pm on Tuesday, 13 November, 2012, repeated on Wednesday 14 November at 1.05 am.

In this film, HRH The Prince of Wales shares memories and recalls events from the Queen's public and private life adding his own commentary and insights. Previously unseen photographs and cine films from Her Majesty's private collection - many of them shot by The Queen herself - capture family life. 


Highlights include private camera footage, taken on Coronation day behind the scenes at Buckingham Palace, which shows Her Majesty juggling the dual role of mother and Queen as she walks along the corridor of Buckingham Palace and poses for official photographs.

The Prince also shares footage from various family holidays, including one sequence filmed by the Queen in which we see a young Prince Charles and Princess Anne playing in the sand at Holkham Beach in Norfolk.

 There are also film sequences on board Britannia, at Windsor and at Balmoral, all of which give the viewer a fascinating insight into the life of the Royal Family in the 1940s and 1950s.
