He’s best known as the ‘Mad King’, but how fair is this reputation? And does it overshadow King George III’s achievements as a monarch?

As the first exhibition to focus on King George III of England opens at Buckingham Palace, this documentary feature reveals another side to the much-maligned monarch. He was a patron of the arts and sciences, with a priceless collection of art and books that form a major part of Britain’s cultural heritage, and despite the constant threat of revolution, he brought stability to Britain and the monarchy.

With new revelations from diaries and letters, along with interviews with experts and the Prince of Wales, HOW MAD WAS KING GEORGE? examines why history remembers him as a fool and a madman - and whether it is right to do so.
