An exclusive opportunity to go behind the scenes of a spectacular ceremony… to see a man becoming a King.

2007 sees Malaysia celebrate 50 years of independence… It's a fast changing society with a new King…one of the youngest in the world. Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin – is only 45. He's a thoroughly modern man…But a champion of tradition. He must lead a double life. Performing his public duties under the spotlight as a king – and protecting his private role as a man husband and father. At a cross roads in his own life, about to be crowned king, Tuanku Mizan allowed us to be special guests at his Coronation.
