Blimey! In the new "Downton Abbey" movie, King George and Queen Mary have invited themselves to Downton, panicking everyone upstairs *and* downstairs. But no one would be more terrified to appear in a movie than King George himself, who in real life banned all fictional portrayals of himself and his family. Today, of course, movies and TV shows about the Royals are practically a genre unto themselves. Let's trace the long, surprising history of the love affair between mass media and the British monarchy, and ask why audiences are so eager for a peek into the palace (and why we should be glad there's no Smell-O-Vision). Special guest: "Downton Abbey" creator/producer Julian Fellowes and show/film historical advisor Alastair Bruce of Crionaich.Get tickets to see Downton Abbey only in theaters: downtonabbeytickets.comPre-order now at apple.co/downtonabbeymovie
