Peaceful Coexistence
17 December 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

This is 1958 and the monarchy is beginning to become passe. Elizabeth takes a canned speech to a Jaguar plant and insults the workers with her condescension. A journalist who read the speech ahead of time, suggested changes and is ignored. He then goes rogue. He writes a negative article about the Queen and receives angry responses, but when he appears on an interview show, he regains his credibility. The Queen takes his comments to heart but is not happy. There are some really interesting developments as things roll along. Excellent episode.
