Gorgeous George III


“King George III goes from a young unpopular king to a much-loved figure some 60 years later, and we learn a bit about his court life along the way. Meanwhile, across the world we hear about some of the words we have got from India, and the Battles of the Day team give their unique insight into the American Revolution.”
