Forty years since the story of the Royal Collection was last told so extensively on television, a four-part series for BBC Four brings the many treasures of the Collection to television.  Andrew Graham-Dixon selects some of the most spectacular works of art, as well as some of the lesser-known objects, as he visits royal residences, museums and galleries across the UK.
