Please, not another Juan Carlos fight.  This is not supposed to be a controversial thread!

Indeed thank you. I have seen it before but that is a incredible video. There is much wisdom in his words.

This a clip from a Canadian history documentary. This part deals with the efforts of the American rebels to get the Canadians on their side. At about 4:08 the film states that the loudest voice against revolution was the Church.

I just thought I'd bump this one up since there seem to be a number of Canadians on the board and no one commented on it. I thought it was very touching. Almost brought a tear to my eye.

Of course this isn't a live clip of anything really, however it was a special on television. It's King Charles the second dissolving the Parliament that killed his father.

That was great.  You tell 'em, Your Majesty!

I've seen that production but it had been awhile since I watched it.

The Belgians have not forgotten, eh? Here is the website from The Last Post Association. Since 1928, the Last Post has been played here in honour of HM's Canadian Forces that liberated Belgium. When Belgium fell to the nazis, they didn't miss a day, sounding the Call in England until the Liberation. Then, with street fighting still going on in Menim, it was sounded at the Gate.
 
God save the Queen, the King of the Belgians and the Belgian People!

Unfortunately, the actor did not give the speech with very much manly authority. He should not have dropped his voice so much at the end of each sentence, especially considering that the final word of a sentence was usually the most important one. As far as scene-setting goes, perhaps a few candles would have made it more realistic. Otherwise, it was excellent !

What constitutes 'manly authority' in the voice may very by century as it does by culture.

A low voice (bass and quite) commands the greatest respect for manliness in my 'culture of origin'.

A Mennonite father whispers and is obeyed.

Being able to 'bark it out' like a mad dog does so in the US Marines.....

Of course I've no idea what the 'standard was' back then...........

What was it?

"Storicus"'s channel looks great; I just subscribed though won't watch this instant as I have something else on.  In the unlikely case that you hadn't noticed, he is a new member here and posted about the channel in this thread.

I'd noticed, Theodore. That's where I got the link from.

The deleted video was a rendition of something played at the coronation of Elizabeth II. (I forget the music piece's name already. You watched it, though.) It was beautiful.
