A note from me, lapsed Historian that I am. The quote they use at the end about King George III writing in his diary is a great story, but apocryphal. It's probably worked it's way from the French revolution. On July 14, 1789 — the date of the storming of the Bastille — Louis XVI of France wrote in his diary "rien (nothing)."
