The king's real speech

THE KING’S SPEECH, a biopic starring Colin Firth playing the role of King George VI has been nominated for an impressive 12 Oscars. For those that just woke up from a Rip Van Winkle nap and have not heard of this film, the story centers around his relationship with a speech therapist who helps him overcome his chronic stammer as he shoulders the responsibility of being king for a nation during difficult times. The BBC video above is an actual recording of him giving a speech. For those who have seen the film, it makes for an interesting comparison!
