Monarchists might like this one...

This docudrama about Elizabeth II is done in an interesting way; rather then a Helen Mirren or Prunella Scales trying to imitate her for 90 min's, 4 different actresses protray her at different times in her life. It also uses newsreel and documentary footage of her:
(here are th efirst two parts, I believe the whole series is up on youtube).

Thanks for the link. I've just finished watching the first part and look forward to the rest.

One possible slight error, however. There was mention that Princess Margaret was with her father when he died. Accounts that I have read record that the King had died during the night and was found by his manservant in the morning. I suppose it is possible to reconcile these accounts. And, of course, it is a very personal matter, so there may be room for speculation. The official story is not necessarily the most accurate. The development of the adult relationship between the two sisters will be an interesting study.
