  1. I clicked a lot of them. I own three or four of the ones mentioned.

  2. I seem to have problems with finding a place to rent this type of movies in the states. Any ideas, with the exception of buying on Amazon, where I might find some of these movies?

  3. You might want to try your local library. I was pleasantly surprised to find a large selection of foreign/bbc films.

  4. Laurie, your best bet is Netflix. Blockbuster has a horrid selection of period films--they actually told me they don't own anything "old."

  6. I've seen 12 of these. I love royal films! I only own Victoria & Albert and The Young Victoria but there's definitely several here that I want to own. I loved The Kings Speech and can't wait to watch it with my dad soon. I also want to buy Bertie & Elizabeth and The Lost Prince. I've also seen a couple TV movies about Charles, Diana and their sons.

  7. I adored Lady Jane although I know it wasn't historically correct, but wouldn't we all have loved to have Cary Elwes as our "consort"?

    Also loved Victoria and Albert...The Lost Prince...Shakespeare in Love...The Queen...Mrs. Brown...too many!

    Apparently still lots I have not yet seen. Period drama is a huge category isn't it?

  8. Would love to see The Lost Prince but I haven't been able to find it yet.

  9. I've seen quite a few of them, but my favourites were "The Young Victoria" and "Lady Jane"- Helena Bonham Carter and Cary Elwes had such great chemistry in "Lady Jane" and not to mention Cary is dangerously goodlooking :)

  14. I have seen all but seven of these films and own nearly half! I can't tell if that is a good thing or a bad thing, but at least I am in good company!!

    Agree that Netflix carries most if not all of these films and if they don't carry it, you can submit a request asking them to carry it. That doesn't guarantee that they will, but it sends a message. (They carry a LOT of the BBC Acorn videos.)
