A recording of the actual George VI's 9/3/39 speech is available here:

I enjoyed the film, but apart from the the specific historical errors (e.g.Churchill was a huge suppoter of Edward VIII in the abdication crisis) after hearing for 70 years that the British were sustainted in WW2 by Churchill's eloquence it's a bit of a surpise to hear that they really needed to be sustained by George VI's bare adequacy as a public speaker.
