Prince Philip: An Extraordinary Life
A timely tribute to a man who has been on the world stage since 1947.
Born in Corfu in 1921, Prince Philip lived on the national stage through Britain’s move from Empire to Commonwealth amid all the extraordinary political and social changes that have taken place since he married Princess Elizabeth in 1947.
This is a powerful portrait of a man who has often been the subject of conflicting opinions - yet who was the most popular royal amongst Buckingham Palace staff, and who they loved and regarded as a 'man of the people'.
The programme includes contributions from Gyles Brandreth, Philip Eade, Penny Junor, Jeffrey Archer, Emily Nash and Richard Nash.
