Summary, etc.: 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.
