Queen Victoria and Prince Albert fell in love with the camera the moment it was invented and filled their private albums with an astonishing array of photographs.
This programme opens up the pages of Victoria's albums for the first time and tells the story behind the pictures. It uses the Queen's own words from her diaries and personal letters, with sequences filmed inside Windsor Castle and Osborne House.
HRH The Duke of York, an enthusiastic photographer himself, talks about the royal photographic collection with Sir Michael Hordern , the programme's presenter.
Annette Crosbie is the voice of Queen Victoria.

A Saint for Our Time?
On his visit to West Germany earlier this year, the Pope pronounced the beatification of Sister Teresia Benedicta , a Carmelite nun murdered by the Nazis at Auschwitz.
Sister Benedicta had been born a Jewess, Edith Stein. Thousands of Catholics rejoiced at the ceremony, and welcomed the pronouncement as a sign of reconciliation between Catholics and Jews. But many Jews were indignant. In their eyes not only had Edith Stein betrayed her faith by converting to
Christianity, but she died because she was Jewish, not as a Christian martyr. For them, the attempt at reconciliation failed.
Why are relations between Catholics and Jews so difficult and sensitive, and what hopes are there that a better understanding can be achieved?

revealed by Lady Wedgwood Explorations into the hidden meanings of three paintings The Ambassadors by Hans Holbein
In this painting brilliant realism and a rich texture of symbols compete for admiration. The ambassadors are flanked by a still-life whose iconography reveals their hopes and fears. The symbolism points to doubts behind their self-confident stance and leads to the central political crisis of their day - the divorce of Henry VIII from Catherine of Aragon. Music RICHARD ATTREE
