Title: Royal Movies & Documentaries
Post by: mousiekins on September 15, 2011, 01:54:46 am
http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b014s302/The_Queens_Palaces_Buckingham_Palace/

The BBC is doing a series on the Queen's Palaces with this episode talking about Buckingham Palace. The series looks at the history of the Palace including how they were built and why It also looks at the Occupiers who most made an impact on the buildings such as how they looked and operated.

I personally found it interesting and very informative making me look at BP differently then before. I highly recommend a look.

For those who cannot see the BBC version here is another link for you

http://www.putlocker.com/file/FC644B85AAADB71F

This should be available to all

http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b014s302

on the BBC webpage you can take a virtual tour of BP, there is a slideshow of Canaletto paintings (BP has the largest collection of his Paintings) as well bios of the Monarchs featured in this episode who were

Henry VIII
James I and VI
George III and IV
Queen Victoria and Albert
and George VIII

Enjoy!

wow!  :flirt:
You know even after visiting BP not two weeks ago I still can't get enough of it!  :sigh:
I think you could spend two months non-stop wandering through it and still find new things to see.
The visit rushes you through the staterooms a bit and it's kinda hard to see all the details in the rooms because they are so grand and overwhelming and they can only show part of the royal collection at a time there's just not enough wall to hang all the paintings!
So these type of docu's are really neat plus I like the lady talking, she has a good way of telling stories! :thumbsup:
I hope they make a DVD of the series I would buy it for sure!
Thanks for the link mousie, that was an hour well spend!  :thankyou: :BFF: kisss

I am a big fan of Fiona Bruce (the lady presenting) too. But then again as well as presenting the BBC News she does alot of history programmes and I am a huge History buff.

I am glad you enjoyed it  :hi: I found the chandelier part way more intresting then I should have  :tehe: I want one of those lift things for my lights as I have really high ceilings and cannot reach to clean them without ladders and I am scared of heights  :hide:

I will post part 2 Mon/Tuesday for you and anyone else interested.

 :hi: tonight Fiona was at Windsor Castle

http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b0151w1z/The_Queens_Palaces_Windsor_Castle/

I will add a non Brit friendly version later  ;)

I absolutely loved this episode! I found it so fascinating and informative. While BP is the main and official residence so much has happened at Windsor Castle that has impacted the RF personally and as our RF.

Thanks Mousie.
Prince Edward presented documentaries like these years ago. Although the subjects were interesting, I often found myself distracted by his stiff, bristly and pompous personality on camera.   :hide:

@ mousie: Thanks for the link hon! kisss
@ windsor: Yeah I know what you mean I have a dvd that talks about the windsor fire in '92 and he's commenting on part of it, he sounds a bit like Percy Weasley from the HP books :tehe:
Charles on the other hand has a lovely voice and he's a good story teller! :flirt: (should that king thing not work out for him, I think he could make a few quit with spoken books.)

Oh yes I remember him reading stories on Jackanory http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jackanory  :flirt: he read his own book; The Old Man of Lochnagar

hmm i wonder if there's an audio of that one. maybe on YT?


Title: Re: Documentary on the Queen's Palaces
Post by: mousiekins on September 20, 2011, 11:48:17 pm
Most likely only a video as they sat and read to you on camera.

I am sure if you look you may find it. It was 1984 he did it but I have seen the repeats many times.

Post by: YooperModerator on September 24, 2011, 01:03:05 am
Finally got round watching the second part
once again an excellent episode!  :thumbsup:
I've been to Windsor twice and yet once again I'm jealous that fiona manages to see and touch things a regular visitor cannot! (the doll house!) :hiss:
I would love to have a closer look at some of the pieces in the state rooms but there are these velvet ropes keeping you away from it, unfortunately  :sigh:
I really hope they put these series on DVD! BBC is the best when it come to mini series both fiction and nonfiction!


Title: Re: Documentary on the Queen's Palaces
Post by: mousiekins on September 24, 2011, 09:28:06 am
I am glad you enjoyed it  :TCP:

My Mum now wants that doll house and is planning a way to steal it  :tehe:

I can see why HM loves it more then BP and sees Windsor as her 'home'.

Next week Holyroodhouse which I have to admit I know the least about  :KEZZA:

All I know is that it was the home of Mary Queen Of Scotland and Bonnie Prince Charlie used it for his 'uprising' back in the 1700's


Title: Re: Documentary on the Queen's Palaces
Post by: YooperModerator on September 25, 2011, 01:07:13 am
Tell your mum I wish her good luck with that mission!  :tehe:
She'll need a big forklift to move it (the house like a 5 feet high and wide cube!), that is after she managed to enter the actual castle and the room it's in oh and let's not forget the bullet proof glass that's all around that doll house. I bet not even Copperfield could make that doll house disappear! lol
That's one true Mission Impossible and there's no Tom Cruise to help her out! :laugh:
Ah hollyroodhouse the Scottish residence, have to admit don't know much about it either...but I bet it will be another great episode! :thumbsup: ;)


Title: Re: Documentary on the Queen's Palaces
Post by: mousiekins on September 25, 2011, 03:26:10 pm
Well HM only actually stays there once a year and has always (in HM's reign) been the least well known. The place is only really used for official business and entertaining VIP's for 1 week every summer then that is it.

I don't know why the are not doing Balmoral as the 3rd as that is well used whereas Holyrood House is not even really a holiday home  :dontknow:

But I agree it will be a great episode  :thumbsup:

As for my Mum I told her she will need a big handbag to fit it in as the dolls house sure will not fit in her pockets  lol

You are very welcome, serene grace  :flower: :flower:

I hope the parts are in a good order without any repeat becuase they are on 2 different youtube accounts.

I watched it some time ago. You could learn a few things...


Prince Charles at sixty: the passionate prince
links don't work. The account was delated  :bye: :bye:

And I'm so pissed off because youtube delated the account I subscribed where there were uploaded many documentaries about royalty, mainly British. There were also some docs about medieval kings and queens. The one was about Warriors queens - She-wolf and I only managed to watch the 1st part  :bat: :bat: :bat:

William and Kate - Into the Future
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tK4adqoa2As: Some of this is so smarmy, which makes me laugh. She's hardly the victim and Kate has been angling ot be part of the glossy posse since day one really and this heavily features Katie Nichols and really, it's no different than the laughable bios about celebrities.

Kate, Duchess of Cambridge: One Year after Royal Wedding
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5_nhxr0yyDM&feature=related: Just watch how it shows each and every single violation of protocol and it gushes about how William does so much, despite the fact that she is supposed to be the one helping HIM, not the other way around. Shows the celebs as VIP players in the world.

CBS: The Royal Wedding Modern Majesty (Part 1)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wT3u6FOuDJY&feature=related: It actually emphasizes how HM ordered 'no divorce.' Describes the 'love story' to a "T". I didn't realize just how he schmoozed with people in the cathedral before the royal wedding. That is interesting really, that he schmoozed rather than just wait in the vestry.

The Royal Wedding Modern Majesty part 2
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O9TvC44PyHg&NR=1&feature=fvwp: Shows James smarming off at the pulpit. If you look quickly, Kate and William look up startled and then at each other, as if they aren't sure if James should be saying what he is saying. William looks like a naughty boy after a spanking. Described how Kate "played him to perfection/played this well," and tells you everything you need to know about her intentions. Talks about how Diana would have approved.

The Royal Wedding Modern Majesty final part
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q2QWHUq9lBI&feature=relmfu: Yammers about the wedding dress and how regal Kate is and how 'in control' she was as compared to Diana, as usual cutting Diana down. At least Diana made it a point to look regal. Talks about how Kate put British fashion back on the map.

For the life of me, I have no idea how on earth the narrator can stand speaking this tripe. As if Camilla was the one who suffered all the time, the entire time.

Princess Camilla winner takes all Series PART FOUR FINAL PART.wmv
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I0zwU53ryvA&feature=BFa&list=PLE566F8280220A987: I have to admit that I agree that Charles should step down and as far as I'm concerned he should stop down and take his tart with him, at least he should have before William got married, that is, walked and let HM take William under her wing.

I cna't believe I missed the fourth part!

Fergie's expolits also figure throughout the movie, at timecode 1:25, Sarah explains that she was just "topless getting some sun, staying in a private guarded secluded house."   Hmmmm sounds familiar.  :sly:

I just watched Diana, My mother (title translated by me so it could be a bit different) and it was ok. Too centered in William because it was done because of the engagement.

Richard Kay, Jobson and Morton talks. Maybe it's too basic if you've followed Diana or read too many books about her.

It was mainly about Diana and how her actions influenced William behaviour.

I think James Whitaker was right.
Also....already she's proven she's not right for the job, imo. She's basically still staying in the comfort zone of living partime with her parents, She's already photographed topless, bottomless in France, splashed around the world, she hasn't taken on major royal duties except film premieres, etc, shows up dressed inappropriately sometimes. Doesn't seem to do her homework for royal outings.

Here's a playlist of videos for The Trial of Richard III.  On the first one, Richard, Duke of Gloucester provides the introduction.  He has a very nice voice and kind demeanor.  He's also the royal patron of the Richard III Society.  http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL58C1C16CE201057B

I personally think one of his cohorts, like Buckingham, killed the boys without Richard III's permission and against his wishes.  Kind of like when Joab or whomever, killed Absalom against King David's express wishes and command.

CHURCHILL'S GIRL
Pamela Digby married Randolph Churchill after a whirlwind romance, making her Pamela Churchill daughter-in-law to Winston Churchill.
 :queeny:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l9W_Ar0YY5Y

Quote
Pamela Beryl Digby was born in Farnborough, Hampshire, England, the daughter of Edward Digby, 11th Baron Digby, and his wife, Constance Pamela Alice, the daughter of Henry Campbell Bruce, 2nd Baron Aberdare, a peer in the House of Lords.

At 19, Pamela was fortunate enough to go on a blind-date with Winston Churchill’s son Randolph. He proposed to her on the night they met, and Pamela said yes. She wasn’t about to lose her chance at becoming the daughter-in-law of Winston Churchill, despite the fact that her future husband had a habit of asking women to marry him. His record was three women in one night! Apparently Randolph was afraid he was going to die in the war and wanted to sew up having an heir before his death.They were married a few months later and Pamela found herself pregnant shortly afterward.
After giving birth to her only child, Winston, Pamela parked him in the country and spent all her time in London where the action was, even though there was a war on. She spent weekends with the Churchills’ at the Prime Minster’s country home

I've found myself obsessed with looking at Tudor documentaries and movies.  I just hope there will be ones for the Plantagenet's, now that interest in Richard III has soared.  The Plantagenet's had some very interesting monarchs and royals, and they were the last warrior kings of England.

The Plantagenet's had some very interesting monarchs and royals, and they were the last warrior kings of England.

In some ways, it's too bad the Plantagenet dynasty was wiped out.

They were warrior kings and the kings were kingly, not like a bunch of stooped bureaucratic paranoid neurotics. I think the Tudors have done a lot of damage to the nation and it's a shame that the Windsors are so gutless and inept. They can't even scheme properly and do anything effectively. Their courtiers are the ones with the brains, but unfortunately, without the power and ability to make things happen and get things done.


Title: Re: Royal Movies & Documentaries
Post by: Snokitty on May 26, 2013, 11:13:10 am
Henry VIII was always looking for the glory of war. He wanted to be remembered as a warrior King. I wonder what he would think about how he is remembered.   8)  He chased a Son who never ruled in his own right because he died so young. It is funny because the daughter Anne Boleyn gave birth to was the only one of the three remembered as being a good leader. Yet because of Henry's obsession of chasing a Son to the point of murdering her Mum she never married and had children and his dynasty died out.


Title: Re: Royal Movies & Documentaries
Post by: Kuei Fei on May 26, 2013, 12:49:08 pm
Pity it turned out that Henry wasted ten years, thirteen, on Anne Boleyn and didn't marry while he was still young and fit and had time to sire a few healthy kids. He could have married someone younger than Katherine of Aragon as well and ended up having more kids. He married the wrong women at the wrong time.


Title: Re: Royal Movies & Documentaries
Post by: Snokitty on May 26, 2013, 01:33:18 pm
True but the reason Henry's wives couldn't get past the first pregnancy was because he had infected them with the "French Disease" as they called it. Had he kept it zipped up and been faithful then he would have gotten his heir sooner. I believe Catherine of Aragon was a mistake and she used his naivety to keep from going back to Spain in shame. I see nothing shameful about a widow returning home but in those days I suppose it was considered a failure.   :dontknow:   He should have sent her back to Spain right after his Father died. I believe she & Arthur consummated their marriage because they were two teenagers with raging hormones who were in the same bed as Husband & Wife.


Title: Re: Royal Movies & Documentaries
Post by: berlin on May 26, 2013, 03:11:29 pm
Yeah, as much as I pity Catherine de Aragon, I think she should have been sent home after Arthur died.  However, I bet she would have married Richard III's son and still have been queen-a much happier queen.  I am very saddened at Richard III's demise.  He did a lot of good for the common man.  But I guess Protestantism couldn't wait.  Too bad it had to come through a *sleazy*.

I rather agree; she never really fit in when it came to England and her extreme piety caused endless fasting and rigorous prayers malnourished her. I don't think she would have ended up being good for Henry VIII either way. It took a long time for the Spanish to trust the Tudors and the Plantagenet royals wouldn't have dared treat Katherine the way that Henry VIII did. Henry was a king in miniature, but realistically he failed in his personal life massively.

Henry would definately be saddened that his son did not live to reign, but as far as how he treated his wives, I doubt he would care one iota ...he was such a egomaniac.

Henry VIII was such a egomaniac that I think he would absolutely love seeing years of television air time, books and movies devoted to his life and his reign and he would take the credit for Elizabeth  (as coming from his loins) even though he didn't want her to begin with. He would love that the world is still talking about him on a daily basis, even if it's negative. He would say he gave England the Church of England even if it came about through his own selfishness. He would love all the attention he's getting.

Henry married fertile women, it's just that he was so disease ridden and the poor women ended up miscarrying. He then blamed it on the women. Even his last wife had a child after Henry died, so she wasn't too old to reproduce, I think I read she was actually still in her 30's but the movies always portray her as much older for some reason.

Catherine of Aragon and Henry were said to be happy during the first years of marriage, they were a golden couple supposedly at first, but well we know how that ended.

I've listened to a few a David Starkey's podcast of HenryVIII and he seems to believe that Catherine of Aragon did sleep with Prince Arthur. She told a big whopper to marry HenryVIII. Sad Catherine didn't just return home, she may have found another Kingdom to marry into and a nicer husband King.

I think KOA should have bailed; she wouldn't have been Queen of England, but she would have had a decent life whoever she married. Her biggest mistake was (I think she did too) lying to Henry; back then she and Arthur would surely have done something as they knew what was expected.

You know, if KOA had gone into a convent, or nominally taken the vows, it would have left Marry senior in the line of succession and Harry would have been eternally grateful to her. Second, Katherine was leading a nun's life anyway, so no point in her really refusing. Win-win all around.

Taking the vows is different; she would have exited a (still then considered) legitimate union and Katherine would have been able to have a life of her own, life with Mary, and then been treated a lot better. At the time, Henry was still willing to let her go minus making the marriage illegitimate. He wanted a divorce at first.

A former Queen of France once retired to a convent so her husband could marry someone else, for France's sake and it worked out fine.

An annulled marriage in the catholic church doesn't affect the children.

If Katherine had come back to Spain the family would have tried to marry her to another king or future king. They did the same to an older sister, her husband died and they married her to her husband's uncle.

Quote
Elizabeth Woodville, "The White Queen" has been portrayed in novels and legends as a romantic figure. In reality, her 15th Century life was far from a fairy-tale. She may have married for love but as England's Queen she faced danger and betrayal.

As a 10-part drama series "The White Queen" starts on BBC One this Sunday, historian Amy Licence delves behind the myth to find the real Elizabeth Woodville.

Elizabeth Woodville was born around 1437 at Grafton Regis, Northamptonshire. Her mother had been married to a son of Henry IV but after he died, the wealthy widow controversially became the wife of her social inferior, the knight Richard Woodville. Elizabeth was the eldest of their 14 children. She married, aged about 15, and soon after the country erupted in civil war. Known as the "Wars of the Roses" or "Cousins' War," this pitched the "red" Lancastrians against the "white" Yorkists in a struggle for the throne.

This White Queen is such a travesty, Your Majesty! Why howlers like concrete steps, metal railings and rubber boots are turning TV's new period drama into a laughing stock

Quote
It's the BBC’s new period drama – depicting the epic struggle between two dynasties fighting for the  English Crown.

But producers of The White Queen have their own epic struggle on their hands – with historical accuracy.

Viewers of the lavish £10 million sex-and-swordfighting series have pointed out a series of embarrassing blunders that are making it a laughing stock.

What REALLY goes on inside the Royal bedroom? The late-night history of the British monarchy unveiled in fascinating new BBC documentary

    Historian Lucy Worsley delves into the late night lives of the Royal family
    From Medieval kings and travelling beds, to Tudor wedding nights
    Tales From The Royal Bedchamber documentary appears on BBC4


It's where the future of the British monarchy is decided, but the finer points of what goes on inside the Royal bedroom remain, thankfully, private. And yet it hasn't always been that way.

In Medieval times, travelling kings used their mobile royal bedchamber as a meeting place, conducting day-to-day business with courtiers on their bed. Moreover, kings and queens would sleep separately, meeting only for conjugal visits.

During the Tudor and Stuart periods - from when Henry VII came to the throne in 1485 - the bedroom quickly took over from the battlefield as the stage where the long-term success of the dynasty would be secured: what happened behind closed doors became a matter of intense public scrutiny.

Throughout the 17th and 18th centuries the royal bedchamber became a place where aspiring courtiers could gain influence and status: if you were admitted to see the king or queen in their undergarments, you knew you were pretty important.

Now inquisitive historian Lucy Worsley has journeyed into the late night lives of the Royal family, peeking behind the bedroom doors of Medieval kings right through to Queen Victoria.

It took me a while to get into it and I understood the connections between the family and the history. Problem I had in the beginning was with the character of Elizabeth Woodville. She almost too nice at first but as the series progressed she became darker. Favourite characters are Richard Duke of Gloucester who becomes Richard 111 and the Earl of Warwick.

I was never of the opinion that Richard 111 was as black as he was painted and last night it became clearer as to why he took the throne over his nephew.

Worth watching but I am unsure about the casting of some of the characters.

Not sure if a final decision has been made about the burial of Richard 111 but the series will certainly gain further interest in his burial.

I find that these Kings and Queens were much more interesting that the present day royalty.

I have to say I love royal history up until the Stuarts post King James I.  I think I dislike the Hanoverians the most.  From reading the articles I think they cast Richard III's character perfectly, but I have not seen the series yet.

the aristocrats
http://www.channel4.com/info/press/programme-information/the-aristocrats

The Aristocrats, directed by Bafta-winning film-maker Patrick Forbes (The Force, English Heritage, Wikileaks: Secrets and Lies, The National Trust),
explores modern day high society through historically prominent families.
With unique access to names of note and notoriety, The Aristocrats opens a window onto a so-called privileged world, as aristocrats share
their daily lives and give their own views about their place in a changing society.

-The Rothschilds

-This film follows Nick Ashley Cooper coming to terms with his sudden and brutal assumption of the title of the 12th Earl of Shaftesbury, trying to rescue the Shaftesbury family name – famed for philanthropy and acts of charity down the centuries – from bankruptcy and ruin.

-The second film centres on Charles Gordon-Lennox, the Earl of March and Kinrara, heir to the Dukedom of Richmond, and owner of Goodwood.

-Offering exclusive insight into one of the most famous father and son relationships in Britain - and historically the bitterest -
the first film, The Aristocrats: Blenheim Palace, follows a story of reconciliation and redemption.

The Percy family is pretty independent for an aristocratic family; they each have careers to sustain their own independent life, thus reducing stress on the family trust and by the time Earl Percy inherits he'll have the training through his own business and his own bank account to add to the family trust.

I hear Hollywood is taking a new interest in Mary Queen of Scots ... wonder what they will come out with let's hope it's watchable  :snob: ...

There is one series that has been created based on her early life in France called "Reign": http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reign_%282013_TV_series%29

It's really really good and it shows a huge amount of evolution in character development and the actresses are highly skilled in changing with the changing times.

There is the recent television series about Mary Queen of Scots, called "Reign."

Reign - Extended Trailer
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FRpcOUiJJdc

I am so glad they decided to go with modern fashions and realistically, this is how they likely were as real people. Having studied the Renaissance court of France it's refreshing to see the clothing more colorful, the words more realistic, and likely the scheming portrayed just as it happened.

The thing is, that the royal court (like all of them at the time) was so loaded with intrigue, backstabbing, and such that I sincerely believe that there was more going on than just the blank spots that history books leave unwritten about since so much of it is simplistic. When it came to the royal day to day routine, there was more than just one year of Mary arriving as an infant and then suddenly turning sixteen and getting married with nothing in between. Mary did get trained in the French court to be as deceptive as she was and certainly, how she knew how to write in cipher code and end up learning how to smuggle stuff to various people.

Netflix plans £100m TV epic to honour Her Majesty: New series The Crown to dramatise The Queen's six decades on the throne


At least three actresses will portray the Queen in a £100 million, epic Netflix drama spanning her more than six decades on the throne.

The marathon series, featuring more than 20 hours of viewing, is being penned by Peter Morgan, who wrote the film The Queen, for which Helen Mirren won a Bafta and an Oscar with her landmark portrait of Elizabeth II.

The first few episodes of what will be known as The Crown will be shaped by Stephen Daldry, who directed Morgan’s stage play The Audience, which again starred Mirren as Her Majesty.

^I tried to watch Versailles, but it shows a lot of graphic (and I mean GRAPHIC) sexual encounters that frankly made me want to puke. I'm going to go back to it when I have the stomach, since it does have quite a few interesting events and I am fascinated by the reign of Louis XIV.

^Episode one has more than the rest, sexually-explicit, I mean but I found it to be pretty realistic of the way of the times and not gratuitous.  The plot line kicks in and you forget all about that.  History is quite clear about the King's brother being bi or homosexual and open about it.  It's how it was.  And there's a wonderful scene down the road that is redemptive, KF.  Trust me.

I watched the rest last week and I was enthralled. I admired how Louis set his wife straight on how her actions would affect the safety of France. How it wasn't just adultery by a Queen, but an act of sedition by a traitor. He was seriously regal and seriously frightening at that point.

^Oh, I'm so glad you enjoyed it and now I have someone to gush over it with because I was enthralled as well.  What a production.  What costumes.  What a king!  Who acted like a king!  He appears distracted or seems understated and all of that and then bam! he makes a move that stuns you and he never ever wavers that he is the King and you are not and never will be.  I love, love, love it and can't wait for Season 2 whenever that is that we get it in the US.  Argh.

The actor who plays Philippe does a remarkable job as well but the man who plays Louix XIV just nails it.  Really nails the whole mindset of the period and I've been to Versailles enough times to get goosebumps when I see this/that room and ooooh, it's wonderful!

a lot of great leaders are like that.

What I liked is how they introduced characters like Louise Keroulle, who became the mistress of Charles II; Louise de la Valliere who was his mistress and devoutly religious who became a nun. Then there was others and I admire how it showed the love that Louis had for his sister-in-law.

I believe Louis wanted to marry Henriette, but because Charles II at the time was a dethroned royal, Louis' mother insisted that he marry the Infanta.

^I do believe you are correct on that and have you gotten to the nunnery part yet?  Don't know how far you're into it so don't want to release spoilers to you or anyone else.  Once this hits mainstream in the US, which will take forever, we'll be so hip and ahead of the curve because it will be a hit.  No doubt in my mind.  Those who have pirated it are gushing.

What I'm told is that Season 2 picks up a year or two later in the King's life and we begin the political machinations over the nobles.  Yess!

Because it's been such a hit, Netflix will/may/gossip? gain the rights (which may be a repeat, for starters of Season 1) but then Season 2 is on Ovation which I can't get on DISH but am signing every petition I can to get it back in time for October 2016's release.

This Twitter account gives me all my updates because I was so bummed when S1 ended.

I don't think the show will focus too much on de la Valliere going into a convent, but I look forward to seeing Louise Kerouelle being asked by Louis XIV  to become the mistress of Charles II. Louise was a lady in waiting to Henriette and now with Henriette dead, Louise now has no legitimate position in court.

I am going to have a whale of a good time watching history unfold and frankly I love every minute of Versailles. I admire how they aren't making Louis XIV like he's stereotypically portrayed, they're making him someone who is multi-faceted and someone who takes his time in getting angry. He is blunt.


Title: Re: Royal Movies & Documentaries
Post by: YooperModerator on April 25, 2016, 12:21:56 pm
^Again, I don't want to spoil a minute of the series so will say nothing.  The story is so vast that the makers have wisely chosen to film this in the sense of showing just how centrified (word/not word?) Louis XIV truly was so they hone in closer and closer on how politically-changing his methods were and how difficult they were to attain to make him the center of the universe/true Sun King of France at that time. 

I agree completely that they have done a really grand job of showing how multi-faceted Louis was at the time and how brilliantly young but it took me some time to get into the rhythm of his just walking in wherever he felt like it and when.  It was startling at first but super cool.  Man, I'm just counting the days until the next season.

The gardener, as a self-proclaimed gardener myself, really fascinates me so I'm hunting down a book on that guy.  I've spent full days walking through the gardens at Versailles and even planted a few of the same plants in my own garden in homage.  The lake!  How they managed to do that was nothing short of an engineering miracle and many people lost their lives during the creation of this massive seat of power.

I like how it concentrates on the court and doesn't blather on about the politics and other issues that often get dragged into great movies. It shows the world as Louis knew it and how his brother stifled under being the younger brother of Louis. I like how it showed the love between Louis and his SIL Henriette, which is historically accurate. Louis wanted to marry Henriette, but was forbidden by his mother since Charles II was a dethroned King and was stigmatized because of it. Then go figure Charles II is restored to the throne and King in fact and power and it was too late for Louis and Henriette.

I downloaded and the episode is great. I believe they've done the right thing this time around.


Title: Re: Royal Movies & Documentaries
Post by: YooperModerator on November 12, 2016, 04:55:50 am
^Agreed.  Just watched the first three episodes and it's filmed beautifully and very engaging.  I'm not sure how studiously accurate it all is but I'm really enjoying it.  They picked good actors to play all the parts, that's for sure, and the CGI is done really well with crowds and BP and all of that.  All the clothes seem historically correct and costuming is amazing.  The story writes itself, really, and it's fascinating.  So, that's all good.

One problem I have with it, though, is they do make HM look far more nervous and childish than I think she actually was at that time.  I've read and heard from so many here that she was a pretty serious young woman and quite self-assured from a young age so all this hesitancy and "what happens now?" stuff doesn't ring true for me.  She was and is no fool and they just hint at her being all lost at sea over what to do and so on.  I don't buy that.

I hope it triggers an interest in people to learn more about her history as well as how the monarchy works.  I continue to be amazed at how little those outside of our world here at RGF even understand the whole issue of titles, the Windsors themselves, Queen Mary and so on. I know I didn't know much when I first came here.  They hand hold you a bit too much about what a "Queen" is which was sort of silly, tho. Even I knew that much. Somebody working at BP knows the difference between Queen Mary, the Queen Mother and "The" Queen, for instance.

But, all in all, very very good tv.  Somebody spent a fortune on this, that's really for sure.  You'll see players from The Tudors in it as well.  And Eileen Atkins?  Superb.

All in all, worth your time, I think.


Title: Re: Royal Movies & Documentaries
Post by: meememe on November 12, 2016, 05:03:38 am
I too thoroughly enjoyed it.

I didn't mind the scene with Queen Mary going through the Queen titles with her nurse as I think the nurse was a temporary employee and not a permanent one. She herself said that she had been given a 'sheet' with all the titles etc.

I found the ages of the kids playing Charles and Anne off as they had the same two kids playing them from aged 3 years and 2 months up to 8 for Charles and 15 months to 6 years old for Anne. That grated with me.

I loved how they, at times, included real footage as well and even once of twice photoshopped Claire and Matt into Elizabeth and Philip's positions. Some was factually accurate and others weren't e.g. the black dress - she had one with her in Kenya and wore it onto the plane when leaving there rather than needing it to be delivered to the plane when back in the UK.

^True.  But, with the vetting that the BRF does, even a nurse would know the scorecard.  That was targeted for the viewers, I think.

^True.  But, with the vetting that the BRF does, even a nurse would know the scorecard.  That was targeted for the viewers, I think.



They didn't vet as much back then at all. Some staff were simply employed there for a day or so for certain reasons and then moved on. They certainly didn't vet anything like they do today.

Many nurses and other staff would be in for a couple of days and then gone and yes they did serve that closely to the person. This nurse may even have had a roster such as one week at Marlborough House and then next week back at her base hospital with other nurses taking over that duty.

Supposedly they want to span all decades of her reign, each series/ season will be one decade. That sounds exciting. I have yet to watch, but going by the pics I have seen and trailers and all the positive feedback, I'm looking forward to it. Historical inaccuracies always annoy me, same with "Victoria", but oh well, I guess we can't have it all..


Title: Re: Royal Movies & Documentaries
Post by: YooperModerator on November 13, 2016, 04:22:26 pm
I totally binge-watched up to episode 9 last night.  It's super great!  Their timing is a little odd and moves fast and then slows down, year wise, but they're chronologically on target.  With HM's history, it will take mega-episodes to complete this, so, yay! 

Don't want to give away any spoilers but did anybody else feel just awful for HM and her interaction with PP in the later episodes?  I can see both sides but that woman is made of solid steel most of the time so any display of emotion is a HUGE deal.  Fascinating and well done, so far.

^Right you are.  Any historical inaccuracies just have to be accepted as "dramatic license".


Title: Re: Royal Movies & Documentaries
Post by: Kuei Fei on November 13, 2016, 04:29:40 pm
You know, I'll never understand why Prince Philip complained all the time. If he did in the early years as well (as has been documented) I would have been seething mad at how the ingrate who knew the realities, keeps up the whining and moaning and the 'witching' (substitute for the other word) and frankly I don't understand WHY Elizabeth didn't just tell him off. He has no business asking for exceptions and frankly ti's an insult to his Queen.


Title: Re: Royal Movies & Documentaries
Post by: YooperModerator on November 13, 2016, 04:32:59 pm
^From where I sit, I think it's because the Queen was and still is, deeply in love with that man/cad.  She just is!  Can't fault her for that but, right now, he's behaving like a petulant child.  In the series, that is.  Not sure how true any of that is but I find most of it believable. 


Title: Re: Royal Movies & Documentaries
Post by: HRHOlya on November 13, 2016, 04:54:29 pm
I still have to watch it (currenty (binge) watching the last season of Gilmore girls in prep for the new episodes so don't have much time to dive into binge watching sth else), so my commenting is almost superfluous, but he did often throw a tantrum because his wife was more important and he couldn't be "the man of the house", so much of it I expect is believable. That is why they supposedly struck a deal: in public she's the boss, but behind closed doors (in family life), he's the boss. I can understand that it was hard for a man to be so relegated, esp back then and I think even today it must be hard, for Daniel in Sweden for example, but I agree, you get huge perks, so get over it sugar.
Someone (I think someone from the Swedish rf, Carl Gustav maybe?) said that it's easier for a woman to marry in, because she's instantly elevated, but hard for a man, because he has to/ does go into the background, which is true when you think about it...


Title: Re: Royal Movies & Documentaries
Post by: YooperModerator on November 13, 2016, 05:03:42 pm
^Yep. And PP is apparently a proud man.  It's quite the interesting marriage.  But, I'm really applauding HM so far for being so forward thinking, at that particular time in our world history.  The business with Princess Margaret and Peter Townsend is particularly intriguing.

You know what line just leaped off the tv at me and reminded me of Kate immediately?  It was the Duke of Windsor saying, regarding the Firm, "You're never ever sure if you're "in" but you're always sure when you're "out".

Post by: HRHOlya on November 13, 2016, 05:17:21 pm
^^ Yikes, but rings true with the Winds. It would be better if they would let emotions in and dropped the stiff upper lip, better to say what's wrong and what is expected than to keep people going of the rails and then shutting them out overnight.... Some might not realize their mistakes and think all's fine (and I don't mean public people like Kate, to whom mistakes have been pointed out ad nauseum, by the public if not the family; it's others I pity who are more in the background who then might not realize mistakes and no one's there to say "not like that mate"). A dangerous bunch, that's for sure.

They cut people out for the most trivial things and they do mistreat their aristocracy. Lady Sarah was courted, then cut out from the royal invite list and I don't know why on earth Charles and Co. would do that to a member of their aristocracy. Or anyone. Always cutting people out after stringing them along and basically pretending they do not exist. It's another reason I wager decent families and people don't want them around. Imagine being a hardworking charity volunteer and then suddenly, after giving your all, being cut off and out in the cold.

My favorite movie in life is called Sissi made with the actress Romy Schneider, I watch this movie every day for years, I love this movie, and I would like to know if you have information from the real Empress Sissi's family in which the movie Was based. Guys, the movie is beautiful, it's worth watching. I get excited every time I watch, and I love putting on this movie before I slept, sleeping watching and my dad turns off the television every night because my father knows I slept watching Sissi :bouncy: :bouncy: :bouncy: :bouncy:

In 1897, Queen Victoria celebrated her Diamond Jubilee - the first British monarch to do so. But beyond the grand celebrations on London's streets, a war was raging between Victoria and her court over her relationship with her Indian servant Abdul Karim. Victoria's friendship with her Scottish servant John Brown is a familiar story. Her relationship with Karim is less well known but produced even greater shockwaves in the palace. Originally one of two Indians selected to join the Queen's household, Karim rose from being a humble waiter to become Victoria's most intimate confidant. He introduced her to the delights of Indian cuisine, fed her romantic visions of India, and became her 'Munshi' or teacher, giving Victoria daily lessons in Hindustani. Their relationship violated Victorian taboos of race and class as well as stoking bitter jealousy in the royal household; Karim was showered with honours and promoted over the courtiers whose families had served the royal family for generations. The presence of a Muslim at the heart of the British court even threatened to destabilise the politics of Empire itself. A crisis point was reached in the summer of 1897 in a dramatic confrontation between the Queen and her family, which threatened to plunge diamond jubilee celebrations into chaos. The film features interviews with relatives of both Victoria's household and Abdul Karim, as well as extracts from Victoria's diaries and journals
