- Program Description
Broadcast Sundays: October 17 and 24, 2004 The little-known story of Edwardian royal, Prince John, the youngest child of George V and Queen Mary, whose short life spanned one of the most momentous periods in history -- the political build-up to the First World War and the machinations of European royalty in the early part of the 20th century. Set against a backdrop of unprecedented upheaval in Britain, "The Lost Prince" tells the very human story of a unique family and an extraordinary boy. Diagnosed as an epileptic, and suffering from autistic-like learning difficulties, Prince John was unable to participate in public life and became increasingly isolated from his family. Written and directed by Steven Poliakoff. Starring Gina McKee, Tom Hollander, Miranda Richardson and Michael Gambon.
