My Father Knew Lloyd George (TV programme)
The programme was set in Victorian England and concerned the antics of a young aristocrat (John Fortune), attempting to distance his grandfather from a scandal concerning the wife of the Prime Minister. Bird himself played Queen Victoria whilst Alan Bennett played the villain of the piece, and Eleanor Bron also appeared. The show was responsible for seeing Bird named TV Personality of the Year by the Society of Film and Television.
