The Queen’s 90th birthday will be celebrated on ITV with a new landmark programme on her life and reign as well as a special with Ant and Dec.
“When The Queen was born 90 years ago, there was no hint that her life would go on to be so profoundly significant in our history. As she reaches her 90th birthday, this film aims to offer a fresh insight into our monarch’s life and work.” – Jo Clinton-Davis, Controller of Factual, ITV
The Queen At Ninety will be a two hour look at the monarch, with the production company granted close access to the work of Her Majesty and other members of the Royal Family across the United Kingdom and overseas during the last year.
The film, to be shown this spring, will include individual contributions from many key figures in Her Majesty’s life, including Their Royal Highnesses The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall and The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. In addition, leading national and international figures will feature as well as material from the most comprehensive international film archives.
“We’ve been fortunate to have the participation of so many members of the royal family to mark this historic milestone in the life of The Queen. It’s a remarkable story of an extraordinary life which in so many ways reflects the changing face of the nation.” – Nick Kent, Executive Producer for Oxford Film and Television
Also on ITV Ant and Dec will host The Queen’s 90th Birthday Celebration, which will be broadcast live on ITV later this year. The Celebration will tell the story of The Queen’s remarkable life from her birth in 1926, through World War Two, to her Coronation in 1953 and a reign spanning more than 60 years.
