Elizabeth: The Unseen Queen
A rare look at the early years of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign, using previously unseen royal archives including the Queen’s home movies. We all know who the Queen is today but who was she before she was called upon to be the monarch 70 years ago? What was the world like that she left behind, and how did she build a new life for herself and her family behind palace doors?
Using archive footage that has never been seen before, this immersive and visually rich documentary reveals the other side to the monarch – a relaxed, family-orientated Queen. Until now, the thousands of hours of footage have been kept private, but to mark the Platinum Jubilee, access has been granted to an extensive collection of more than 400 reels – a filmic treasure trove.
