Most widely held works by Tracey Seaward
The Queen by Stephen Frears( Visual )
37 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 2,706 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Queen begins with a familiar epigraph "Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown"--Henry IV, Part II. The action of the film takes place during the week following the death, on August 31, 1997 of Diana, Princess of Wales. One of its accomplishments, courtesy of adroit use of newsreel and other contemporary footage, is to remind viewers of the deep sadness that surrounded that event. It is also about the divergent and potentially ruinous ways the monarch and Prime Minister Tony Blair responded to the resulting torrent of national grief

The Queen La reina ( Visual )
10 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"La Reina es un íntimo vistazo a lo que sucedió entre Su Majestad La Reina Elizabeth II y el Primer Ministro de Inglaterra Tony Blair, tras el repentino deceso de la Princesa Diana de Gales. Entre dos visiones que edificaron los sucesos (una tragedia privada para la Familia Real o una demanda del pueblo Inglés por muestras reales de luto), la historia será único testigo de lo que realmente pasó entre estos personajes...Una magnífica película, simentada en la increíble actuación de Helen Mirren, quien recibió el Oscar a Mejor Actriz."--Envase
The Queen Sa Majesté la Reine ( Visual )
2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Lorsque survint la mort tragique de lady Diana Spencer, le 30 août 1997, le premier ministre Tony Blair et son parti travailliste étaient au pouvoir depuis à peine trois mois. Elizabeth II, en revanche, régnait sur la Grande-Bretagne depuis 45 ans. Lui, encore vert dans les questions de protocole et de gestion de crise, elle, traditionaliste et hostile aux effusions publiques, ont réagi à ce drame de façon opposée. À l'avantage de Blair, encensé pour sa compassion par des médias qui, du même souffle, reprochaient à la monarque son indifférence. Or, dépassée par la tragédie, plus encore par l'immense affection du public pour la défunte, celle-ci a préféré se replier avec ses proches dans l'enceinte du château de Balmoral, en Écosse. Au bout de cinq jours, Blair réussira à la convaincre d'en sortir
