Prince Charles: The Once and Future Al Gore?

>What has Prince Charles been doing with himself for the past 30 years? Apparently, making a documentary about climate change.

NBC has picked up the film, "Harmony," which "follows the prince at work in Britain and overseas and features contributions from farmers, business and government leaders." Prince Charles, a longtime environmental advocate and organic farmer who has been mocked as "the tree-hugging prince," is even featured interviewing Al Gore in 1988 -- 18 years before Gore won a Nobel Peace Prize for his own climate change movie.

What took the future King of England so long to finish his movie? Spurious rumors that he was taking editing lessons from James Cameron, who took 16 years to finish Avatar, could not be confirmed.
