Jim Jenner returns to his documentary roots to tell you the story of an epic national pigeon race between England's Queen and her countrymen. This important film was created with the full cooperation of the Midland’s National Flying Club, which organized the 2012 Diamond Jubilee race honoring Queen Elizabeth’s sixty-year reign. The film includes the 126-year history of the Royal racing pigeons as well as the race day performances of more a dozen of England’s most palatial and revered racing lofts. Jim was given unprecedented access to the lofts on the Queen’s Sandringham Estate and time with its new manager Peter Farrow. This intense race saw 5,000 competitors, include birds from the Royal Loft, compete over the fields of France, across the channel and into the heart of England.
