Perfect if your five. Otherwise, it is repetitive (same shots over and over) and simplistic. They mention the old and varied plants and then don't show you them, instead using a LOT of time lapse photography, again repeating the same shots multiple times. I would rather have heard about the different species of roses than watch one open repeatedly. Decent background noise but not informative at all.

very well produced look at the gardens of Buckingham Palace throughout the year. Lots of interesting facts about how the gardens are maintained (mostly they use organic products and methods) and the wildlife in the gardens. Although produced in 2014, some of the film footage is "archival". Interesting commentary from various people who work on the gardens.

An insightful and informative look at the gardens and natural areas around Buckingham Palace, over the course of a year. Extensive commentary by staff members is quite enlightening. Highly recommended to anyone with an interest in the Royals or in gardening.

Enjoyable documentary about a year in the Queen's garden in London. I had no idea how extensive the gardens were there - if only I could get an invite to one of the lawn parties! From the rose gardens to the beekeeping - very interesting viewing.

Beautifully filmed and absolutely fascinating... 39 acres in the midst of London that has an incredible array of flowers, vegetation and wild life.

Visually stunning, the time-lapse photography and aerial views are especially striking. A nice portrayal of the life that exists behind the walls in Buckingham Palace garden.
