Princess Margaret: The Rebel Royal

Entered into Best Use of Footage in a History Production by BBC Studios

Princess Margaret: The Rebel Royal draws on a wide range of rarely-seen archive. The film of Margaret’s personal progress is intimate and compelling but the series also tells the story of a nation embracing modernity just as it begins to slip from its position as the most powerful nation on earth. This moment is captured in street scenes, vox pops, formal events and popular culture. The wide variety of archive used in the series, combined with specially-commissioned illustrations, helps tell a compelling social history that attracted one of the largest audiences for factual programmes on BBC TWO in 2018
