Nothing.. since the thrust of the programme is about the way George V used his family to rebuild the image of the monarchy after the war..JOhn had died by then and in any case was not ever likely to lead a public life. The programme is about the "new image" of the RF in the 20s and 30s, where they were seen as supporting charities, doing tours, "working for the Firm" and getting respectably married nad having families (all of course except Ed VIII)
