The early life of Queen Victoria, from her ascension to the throne at the tender age of eighteen to her courtship and marriage to Prince Albert.
Did You Know?
Princess Feodora did not live in the palace and hence would not have been in a position to sell invitations to a ball. There is no evidence that King George IV wanted to marry her, and she was eager to leave Kensington Palace permanently after marrying the Prince of Hohenlohe-Langenburg.
There is no evidence that she was a scheming, jealous sister who fled Langenburg and refused to return to her home. See more
Series 1: PBS Masterpiece broadcasts add on average 5 minutes of additional footage per episode not shown in the ITV broadcasts. The exception to this are the first two episodes of Series 1 which for PBS airing were edited together to form a single feature-length episode for a two-hour timeslot; the edited version removes several minutes of footage from these episodes (including the original closing moments of episode 1). The North American DVD/Blu-ray release of Series 1 is the ITV version and thus does not include the extra footage seen on PBS. Also, the ITV broadcasts/DVD release indicate episode numbers in the opening credits alongside episode titles; this is not shown on PBS. See more
