  • "This is the story of an almost impossible choice--a choice between love and duty. A choice to be made by the King of England, Edward VIII. To choose love is to deny his birthright and throw an Empire into constitutional crisis, to choose duty is to deny himself. This compelling and award-winning seven-part drama covers the period between 1928 and the King's abdication in December 1936. The drama unfolds as desperate attempts are made to bring the King to understand his duty and obligation--a situation which polarised the Cabinet, the Church of England and politicians across the Empire. --"
  • "A powerful fairytale, made all the more compelling because it actually happened, captures the unforgettable romance that develops between the Prince of Wales and an extraordinary American woman named Wallis Simpson. That she is already married and believed to have had previous affairs ruffles more than a few feathers. The scandal only heats up when the Prince becomes King and declares his intention to marry his mistress, who has since divorced and become quite available."
