BBC royal detail

The Royal Collection Season, a major partnership between Royal Collection Trust and the BBC, brings both masterpieces and lesser-known works of art from the Royal Collection to audiences across the UK. The Season includes programming across BBC One, Two and Four, as well as BBC Radio 3 and 4 and local radio, over the course of January and February 2018. 

The centrepiece is a four-part television series on BBC Four, Art, Power & Passion: The Story of the Royal Collection, written and presented by Andrew Graham-Dixon. This is the first time in 40 years that the story of the Royal Collection has been told so extensively on television.
