This fascinating documentary looks at the life of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II - The longest reigning British monarch, through war and peace, crisis and calm.

An extraordinary woman who lived for more than two-thirds of her life on the throne. She was the glue that held her people together, through social and political upheaval. A constant through times of turbulence and change.

Commander in Chief of the British Army, Navy and Airforce, she began talking to her people over the airwaves when she was 14 and was still talking to them until the end of her life.

We look at the extraordinary life of the woman who put duty to her country above all else, and ensured the monarchy were made relevant in modern Britain.

Britain mourns a woman who dedicated her life to service.
