With permission from Her Majesty the Queen, this documentary reveals a year in Buckingham Palace Gardens, exploring the history and this remarkable hidden royal treasure in the center of London. This film uncovers a wonderland with a five century history, an urban oasis of wildlife where the Queen has lived with her family and a 'living museum' where almost every plant (and many of the animals!) have a royal story to tell. With unprecedented access we follow the garden's transformation across all four seasons uncovering rare flowers specially bred for the Queen, extraordinary wildlife captured using hidden cameras, a vast lake with an island in the middle where the royal bees make honey, and a giant 15ft marble urn that once belonged to Napoleon to name but a few of the treats in store.

A very sweet and cozy documentary about what goes on in a year in the gardens of Buckingham Palace. If you enjoy gardening or gardens in general I would recommend this. If you don't enjoy those things, you might find this video a bit dry.

very well produced look at the gardens of Buckingham Palace throughout the year. Lots of interesting facts about how the gardens are maintained (mostly they use organic products and methods) and the wildlife in the gardens. Although produced in 2014, some of the film footage is "archival". Interesting commentary from various people who work on the gardens.

An insightful and informative look at the gardens and natural areas around Buckingham Palace, over the course of a year. Extensive commentary by staff members is quite enlightening. Highly recommended to anyone with an interest in the Royals or in gardening.

Enjoyable documentary about a year in the Queen's garden in London. I had no idea how extensive the gardens were there - if only I could get an invite to one of the lawn parties! From the rose gardens to the beekeeping - very interesting viewing.

Beautifully filmed and absolutely fascinating... 39 acres in the midst of London that has an incredible array of flowers, vegetation and wild life.

Visually stunning, the time-lapse photography and aerial views are especially striking. A nice portrayal of the life that exists behind the walls in Buckingham Palace garden.
