The king's real speech

The BBC archives have posted this recording of King George VI's 1939 speech that was recreated in the movie "The King's Speech." Can't embed, though, so go here to listen.

Oscar-nominated Colin Firth did a masterful job reproducing both the speech impediments and the speech patterns of the king. If you haven't yet seen the movie, here's my blog post about it. Don't miss it!
