We've already seen programs about the importance of Alfred Hitchcock's output on the history of cinema. In this program, we'll gain deep insight as we explore Alfred Hitchcock's troubled childhood where his neurosis originated from having been raised in Victorian England, and we'll ascertain how this directly resulted in his inner rage and desires being expressed through such films as The Lodger (1927), Rope (1948), Psycho (1960), Torn Curtain (1966), and Frenzy (1972). Not your typical take on Hitchcock, but rather the turning of a whole new page in the master's career.

Every little girl longs to be a princess, but what is life really like for a young girl growing up first as Elizabeth of York and then as Princess Elizabeth, heir to the throne?

It begins with her grandparents from whom Elizabeth learned that the privileges of royalty come with a dedication to duty and country and her loving parents who did their best to maintain a normal childhood within the royal fishbowl.
