An exploration of former archbishop of Canterbury Cosmo Gordon Lang's bid to remove the monarch on the grounds that his love for the twice-divorced American Wallis Simpson made a mockery of the Crown. Lang worked with Geoffrey Dawson, editor of The Times, and other establishment figures to bring pressure on prime minister Stanley Baldwin to force an abdication, but his public criticism of Edward eventually backfired and his efforts to make the country a more religious place were unsuccessful. Documentary featuring dramatic reconstructions with David Calder
