_Young Victoria_ to be broadcast this week!

"The Young Queen Victoria" by Winterhalter, 1842.
For all those of you who haven't seen _Young Victoria_ yet (including me!), here's your chance!  Beginning Monday, September 20th at 9 p.m., KQED will broadcast the film on channel 54-2 (in Northern California).  It is scheduled to repeat (or finish, I'm not sure which) on Tuesday, and then be shown again the following weekend. 

The official website has some good pictures of the costumes, some of which are copied from actual garments worn by Queen Victoria!

No comments:

Now stir the fire, and close the shutters fast,
Let fall the curtains, wheel the sofa round,
And, while the bubbling and loud-hissing urn
Throws up a steamy column, and the cups
That cheer but not inebriate, wait on each,
So let us welcome peaceful evening in.
-- William Cowper (1731-1800)
