This review is from: Olga: The Last Grand Duchess (DVD)
Olga's story is particularly interesting to me as she lives near Toronto and is buried here. I have visited her grave. She was born into great rank, privilege and wealth and this was all taken from her. She was swept up in the whirlwind of the First World War and then the Russian Revolution. Her great fortitude and the love of her husband and sons helped her to survive in a new country. She was a simple, warm, caring and friendly person who saw more sadness and tragedy than most others ever had or will. It is well documented and there was even footage from early moving picture cameras.

This review is from: Queen Victoria's Children (DVD)
This is a good CD. It highlights the lives of Victoria's children but gives more emphasis to some over others. I guess this is because some had larger roles to play in their countries and on the world stage. Throughout the CD it is repeated over and over again how controlling, and self centered Victoria was. One does tire of the reiteration however. It does explain how the royal houses came to be related and what influence Victoria had.

This review is from: Royal Cousins at War (DVD)
I had seen this programme on television and I really enjoyed it so I wanted my own copy. It gives a good explanation of the causes of WWI and the personalities involved. I am particularly interested in the royals and any parts they played during the war. All the world is a stage and these royal personalities had their roles to play. The huge loss of life and property also affected them personally with abdication, overthrow and murder.

great CD. I only became a fan last year when I bought the greatest hits album. I bought this one recently and was certainly not disappointed. Great songs, some up tempo others less so. A wonderful addition to my music collection.
