THE QUEEN’S CORONATION IN COLOUR

This film takes us behind the scenes of the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, arguably the most elaborate ceremony of the 20th century,

to celebrate not only the Royal Family and those who masterminded the Coronation but the people from all walks of life who contributed to making it a unique occasion. The film weaves together eye-witness testimonies from those at the heart of the action and those who remember watching the magical day unfold either alongside the procession route in London, or on televisions across the world. Presented by British actor Alexander Armstrong.

Reviews

The most delightful moments come when Queen Elizabeth momentarily drops monarchical pretence to admit that the trappings, while impressive, aren’t so comfortable

Marking the 65th anniversary of that historic day, Alexander Armstrong presents this tribute, with the help of colour footage so vibrant that it seems to leap out of our television screens
