A film profile of HRH The Prince of Wales Prince Charles has been described as self-conscious, vulnerable, ambitious and incurably romantic. In this documentary he talks about his life and loves. Historic news-reel film shows him growing up in a changing world under the influence of older members of his family. His schoolfriends recall the shy boy coming out of his shell. Prince Charles wants to succeed in everything he does, and his polo coach and helicopter instructor tell how he pushes himself to the limit. Hugh Scully follows the royal progress, including the Prince's recent visit to Australia and America, and looks at the woman who will have more influence on him than anyone else - Lady Diana Spencer
