  • Title:
    Buckingham Palace
  • Author: Fiona Bruce 1964- onscreen presenter.; Ian Leese producer, director.; BBC Productions, production company.
  • Description: Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle and the Palace of Holyroodhouse - these buildings have been part of British royal history for hundreds of years. Presented by Fiona Bruce, The Queen's Palaces showcases the art and architecture, the interior decoration and the treasures stored inside these fabulous buildings and reveals the surprising and fascinating stories behind them. Combining Fiona's role as interested amateur with contributions from Royal Collection curators and experts, each programme offers a mix of high level insight and interesting and curious stories. Buckingham Palace may be just about the most famous building in the world, but its story is much less familiar. Fiona Bruce reveals how England's most spectacular palace emerged from a swampy backwater in just 300 years. The journey of discovery takes her from the sewers of London to the magnificent State Rooms, from a home for camels and elephants to the artistic brilliance of 18th-century Venice and from a prince's Chinese fantasy to the secret of how the palace's glittering chandeliers are cleaned today.
