When we cut back to Young, it was a relief, as if an adult had entered the room again. I could have handled 30 minutes of Young’s reflections and interviews, but no, we TV viewers needed extra extras, so we were treated to some occasionally flimsy, self-taped tributes to the Queen from various celebs, most of which gave unwanted flashbacks, many zooming in calls of the pandemic.
Some of the backgrounds amounted to treason – Barry Gibb looked like he was in a wizard’s closet. Jools Holland was standing in front of a thermostat.
I also enjoyed the opening montage, in which the Queen met various entertainment heavyweights from the decades past, which featured Craig David and Lulu on a par with Frank Sinatra and Marilyn Monroe.
