The King’s Speech

[not game audio, just plain audio]

Remember Colin Firth’s appearance in “The Kings Speech” (2010)? In this movie the king has severe problems with public speeches and I was really impressed hearing Colin Firth stammering in such a monotone manner. Some time ago I found an actual recording of┬áKing George VI opening an exhibition in Scotland and you can clearly see the reference to this original footage (please click the video if it doesn’t play). The speech starts after 2 minutes.
