This DVD is the first in a unique series that tells the story of Elizabeth II and the country she has reigned over for 60 glorious years. In 1952, the sudden death of her father, George VI, changed her life forever. Our monarch was just 25 and mother to Prince Charles, three, and Princess Anne, 18 months, when she came to the Throne. Winston Churchill was her first Prime Minister. Britain was still bandaging its war wounds and the Coronation sparked the biggest party since VE Day. The country was relieved when rationing ended and enthralled as the Queen named the new royal yacht Britannia. Terrible floods brought us back to Earth and the Suez Crisis took us to the brink of war. But the nation was starting to party again, with the help of rock 'n' roll. Harold Macmillan's Britain had never had it so good. As the 1950s drew to a close, Elizabeth II had made a dazzling impression on the world. She and Prince Philip were expecting their third child and her glamorous sister was secretly engaged to be married. The 1960s were going to start with a bump.
