The Original King's Speech

Here is the original "King's Speech", upon which the movie is based. Let us pray for all those with special needs, and who are burdened with anxiety, that God may help them overcome...

H.M. King George VI, broadcast speech to the British Empire from Buckingham Palace on September 3rd, 1939.

During the 78rpm. Era several important speeches by the British Kings were recorded and published on 78rpm records, especially for very distant and isolated parts of the British Empire, where radio listening could be very troubled.

This recording is the speech from September 3rd 1939, at the outbreak of WW2.
