Good call. I am watching this nowWith your wife's interest, I highly recommend "The Windemere Children." You can find it on PBS online. It's a dramatization of the true story of children Holocaust survivors brought to Lake Windemere in England to recuperate. Wonderfully done with an epilogue of short interviews of a few of the survivors as they are today. A story of triumph over adversity.
On Netflix one of the first series I watched was The Crown. Good although long depiction of the early royal life and decisions in the Windsor family. My explain some of the fascination the British have with their Monarchy and still maintain it despite the form of government
the country has.
