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.

Officially Britons have been Christian for more than 1500 years. But scratch the surface and you'll find their ancestors believed in far more than Christ and the cross. From kings to commoners, they believed gods, witches, sprites, demons, and evil spirits were all indisputably real - and could intervene in their daily lives with devastating results. This is a relatively unexplored aspect of the past yet it's crucial to our understanding of life in previous centuries.
