Andrew Marr presents a three-part documentary series looking at the life and reign of Queen Elizabeth II, with special interviews and remarkable archive footage.

Part I tells the story of the Queen’s happy childhood and her life as a young woman. He traces her life from her birth in 1926 until the death of her father King George VI in 1952.

Part II looks at the life and reign of HM Queen Elizabeth II, including special interviews with Princes William and Harry, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, Zara Tindall and Peter Phillips, the Earl of Wessex, the Duke of York, the Princess Royal, David Cameron, Tony Blair, Sir John Major and President Obama.

Part III the last of the three programs looks at the defining moments of HM the Queen's reign, beginning with her accession to the throne in 1952 and her Coronation sixteen months later.
It examines how she has coped with decades of changing and sometimes tense relations with the media, looks backwards and forwards at royal Jubilees and charts her trip to Australia to look at what some see as her most enduring achievement, the Commonwealth.
