As the Queen mother’s butler and key palace insider he saw and heard everything but never told.  Now his story can be told for this first time.  His life is one of obsession, power, politics and hierarchy inside the royal circle.  But since his death, Tallon’s legacy has also revealed another side, a man split by loyalty, overrun by his sexuality and feared by those who worked for him behind the palace’s closed doors.

With first hand testimony from those who knew, loved, worked for and came up against Bill Tallon, the film will show how he and his partner Reg were the ‘power couple’ whose position allowed them enormous influence and control over young servants and the household itself.

This is the insider story of the key 'man in the background' – who knew the Queen Mother and the royals better than anyone else.
