Just watched a fascinating documentary on the National Geographic channel called "Britain's Nazi King?". It explores the Nazi sympathies of King Edward VIII, and the woman who would become his wife, Wallis Simpson.

The producers analyzed British intelligence and FBI records which have just been declassified. Edward was vehemently against the war with Germany, and threatened to tear up the Treaty of Versailles. The producers claim that Edward's love affair with the twice-divorced Simpson was not the entire reason behind his abdication.

Queen Mother Compilation

Archival footage of the late Queen Mother(courtesy ITN source) - the sound is muted on some clips because of copyright/ownership but it's still an excellent chronicle of her life in the British royal family.

The BBC has commissioned Tiger Aspect Productions to make a one-off drama set against the backdrop of the 1981 marriage of Prince Charles and Lady Diana.

This would be a very interesting documentary to watch. Perhaps it'll show up on YouTube one day, which is probably the only way I'd get to see it.

In the meantime, here's a clip from the National Geographic site. http://channel.nationalgeographic.co...ideos/07013_00

I suppose it's better for an abdicated monarch to be known for wanting to marry an unsuitable woman than to be known as a potential traitor. During the mid-30s, I doubt that very few actually wanted another war with Germany. However, not wanting a war and having a possible traitor on the throne are two different things entirely.

Do you know when these documents were declassified?

Thank you very much for the info, sgl.

This was also shown on Channel 5. July 16th 2009, I believe it was a repeat.

The historical documentary series continues. Edward VIII is popularly remembered as the king who gave up the throne for the woman he loved. Yet his reputation has been tarnished by revelations that Hitler planned to install him as a pro-Nazi king in the event of a German occupation of Britain. Newly released FBI files reveal the extent to which Edward was distrusted by the British and US governments, and the risk he posed to the war effort
Britain's Nazi King - Revealed - TV pick of the day for July 16th

I can't remember the exact year. For some reason, I think it was 2004. It was definitely within this decade. The documentary states the year, but my husband accidentally deleted it from our TiVo. I'm hoping that it will air again, as it was an excellent documentary.

Super RTL is broadcasting today at 20:15 (I guess) a documentary about the life of Princess Diana. It is called "Die Königin der Herzen - Diana und die Zukunft der Windsors" - "The Queen of the hearts - Diana and the future of the Windsors".

I've only just found this post. What exciting news! I have a particular interest in the history of the British in India and the transition period, and I'm reading "Indian Summer" at the moment. And I am also very fond of "our Cate". This is indeed something for me to look forward to.

BBC4 recently showed a documentary called "Balmoral".
BBC - BBC Four Programmes - Balmoral

I stumbled across it on iplayer and thought it was quite informative to those who may not be aware of the history of the building (like me).

Did anybody else see it?
