New and previously unseen footage of Queen Elizabeth II, including home movies and recently digitized "lost" material from her tours around the world, will be shown Thursday in the UK for the first time.

The footage, which also shows an "intimate" portrayal of the Queen on holiday and "off duty," will show the monarch as a "mother, wife, cook, animal lover, farmer, and expert horsewoman," according to channel ITV in a press release.

"The Queen Unseen" program, which airs ahead of the royal's 95th birthday on April 21, aims to "lift the mask of royalty" and reveal the real woman behind the "enigma," said the press release.

The film will feature interviews with Anne Glenconner, who was a maid of honor at the Queen's coronation, royal photographer Arthur Edwards, and Charles Anson, who was the monarch's press secretary in the 1990s.

He will say of the Queen: "It's one woman in two personas.

The footage includes rare amateur video of the Queen and her husband, Prince Philip, at the home of New Zealand's then-governor general, Willougby Norrie, where the couple took a short break from a "grueling" tour in 1953.

The footage was recorded by Norrie's wife over Christmas and shows the royal couple enjoying the outdoor swimming pool, and Philip struggling to climb onto a pool float.

Separate archive footage through her reign shows the Queen holidaying in Scotland, and relaxing at home while cooking a barbecue for friends.
