Osborne House: A Royal Retreat

Factual Documentaries / 1 x 60' / 1 x 85' / HD, Airline, DVD, Non-Theatric

Yeti for Channel 5

English Heritage grant unprecedented access to Queen Victoria’s favourite home Osborne House. No other royal residence offers such an up-close and personal glimpse into the private world of one of our greatest monarchs. It was where Victoria and her husband Prince Albert came to escape the pressures of royal life – and where she finally passed away. Osborne became a place where the couple indulged their passions and raised a family. More than a simple holiday home, it was also a testbed of innovation and a seat of power where the Queen and her Prince would preside over the biggest Empire in human history. Combining stunning cinematography of the house, gardens and surroundings, intimate access to the interior of Osborne, interviews with experts and contributions from those who have the pleasure of working at Osborne – this documentary paints a vivid picture of an extraordinary home.
