the unseen queen

Technically, it was released at the end of May, but considering the Queen’s Jubilee is in June, we’ve included it in the June guide. Among a plethora of programming celebrating the milestone is the unseen queen, a new documentary that uses footage from the Queen’s personal archives to show a different, less visible side of the monarch. Available on BBC One and iPlayer, the doc features footage shot by the Queen herself, her parents and Prince Philip, spanning from her birth and days in a pram to her accession to the throne in 1952. Although programs have been made and shown similar in the past, this one aims to be the most expansive and personal yet.

Netflix’s original superhero show (and competitor to Boys) is also back for a third super serving this month. The series, if you haven’t seen it, revolves around the bizarre premise of a dysfunctional family of adopted superhero brothers who come together to investigate and resolve the circumstances surrounding their father’s death, as well as prevent an impending apocalypse. After season 2 (where the Umbrella Academy team traveled back to the 1960s), the action returns to 2019 America, but things are different. The team has managed to travel to an alternate reality, where a group called The Sparrows replaced them, and unsurprisingly, the two teams come into conflict with each other.
