Following episode two of “Downton Abbey, Season 5” on MASTERPIECE, the documentary THE QUEEN’S GARDEN recounts a year in the Buckingham Palace Garden, exploring the history and natural history of this remarkable 39-acre oasis hidden in the heart of London. With permission from Her Majesty the Queen, the filmmakers explore this urban oasis with a five-century history — a “living museum” where almost every plant (and some of the animals) have royal stories to tell. The program underscores the importance of the garden in the lives of the royal household, with insightful interviews and unprecedented public access to these spaces.
