Summary:
What this intimate portrait makes apparent is that Czar Nicholas II and his wife remained lovers and devoted parents; shy, kindly, and dangerously naive, they retreated from the empire's realities to the safety of a close-knit family. The program looks at the courtship and early years of "Nicky and Alix"-Nicholas, heir to the Russian throne, and Alexandra, granddaughter of England's Queen Victoria. This period sees the birth of their four daughters and son, Alexei. Rare films of the era include footage of Nicholas II's coronation over 100 years ago. Interviews, photos, and letters from the Romanov Archive in Moscow enhance the narrative. A Discovery Channel Production. (47 minutes)

Only available in the US.
