Edward VIII: The Lion King (Channel 4 28 May 2013)

UK / Channel 4 / 1×60 minute episode / Broadcast Tuesday 28 May 2013 @ 9.00pm)

Producer and Director: George Pagliero / Executive Producer: Dick Colthurst

Documentary making heavy use of some recently uncovered footage of the African safaris undertaken in 1928 and 1930 by Edward VIII (filmed by him too!)

The safaris turned out to have major implications, positive ones, for the region after the then Prince witnessed the whole sale slaughter of over 11,000 animals. Such was his shock at the number that he instigated a massive conservation effort.
