Part one presents Elizabeth's formative years - the importance of family and history and the enormous effect her uncle's abdication had on Elizabeth's future. This experience would see the young Elizabeth develop a level of maturity far beyond her years and come to understand the importance of duty and sacrifice in the life of a modern ruler. This is a story of the young princess, who never would have been queen were it not for several twists of history. The story of the killing of her beloved grandfather George V by his doctors; of her grandmother Queen Mary, who taught her strict tradition and protocol; and of the favourite uncle, King Edward VIII, who abdicated and flirted with fascism. And above all, the story of her mother and father - King George VI's bravery in the face of disability and the future Queen Mother, who sacrificed a close, private, near-normal family life to save the monarchy.

Andrew Graham-Dixon concludes his exploration of German art by investigating the dark and difficult times of the 20th century. Dominating the landscape is the figure of Adolf Hitler - failed artist, would-be architect and obsessed with the aesthetics of his 1000-year Reich. In a series of extraordinary building projects and exhibitions, Hitler waged a propaganda war against every kind of modern art as a prelude to unleashing total war on the whole of Europe. After the war the shadow of the Third Reich persisted, Germany remained divided and traumatised. How would artists deal with a past that everybody wanted to forget? From the work of Otto Dix and George Grosz and the age of the Bauhaus to the post-war painters Georg Baselitz, Hilla Becher and the conceptual artist Joseph Beuys is a long strange journey, but the signs are there that art has a place at the heart of the new reunited Germany.
