Edward VIII: The Lion King

Edward VIII: The Lion King

NR
Home movies shot by the controversial Edward VIII reveal the untold story of his extravagant safaris with the real life cast of "Out of Africa" in the late 1920s, complete with adultery, champagne and specially built airstrips. At the height of the Great White Hunter era, Edward turned his back on big game hunting and championed conservation instead. Inspired by his safari guide, Denys Finch-Hatton - played by Robert Redford in the Oscar winning film - he put down his rifle and picked up a movie camera, pioneering the photographic safaris we all know today.
