Abdication on BBC 4

Derek McMillan

Recommended Posts

The dramatised account of the abdication on BBC 4 made it into a love story and a battle between the "People's King" and the stuffy old politicians who wouldn't let him marry the woman he loved.

In a way the whole program was a cover-up because his unsavoury connection with the Nazis did not get a mention. A lie by omission if nothing else.

One also wonders if the only issue was getting rid of "that impossible woman" then why not a little car accident?
