Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, The (DVD)

This fascinating documentary reveals the behind-the-scenes story of the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, drawing on rare archive footage and made using eyewitness accounts of participants and historical experts. The Coronation was seen as an ideal moment for the British Royal Family to establish the meaning of the modern monarchy – reinforcing the idea of continuity and tradition, while establishing the new reign of the young Queen and her modernizing husband, the Duke of Edinburgh. But the sheer scale of the event, combined with jockeying by senior figures who felt they should be pivotal, threatened to turn the whole thing into a disaster. This program shows how, despite bubbling tensions, diplomatic incidents, and political wrangling, the Queen kept her cool, arbitrated with skill, and stayed true to her vision of a spectacular and special coronation.

By wogan TOP 500 REVIEWER on August 18, 2013
This DVD gives you a 50 minute (there are closed captions) look at the Coronation of Elizabeth II and behind the scenes of the coronation. We see, even the rehearsals with the queen's stand in.
Some of the films are colour, some black and white. This is very successful at showing what the coronation meant to the English people and the world. Events are explained by some unobtrusive talking heads-historians, attendants and authors.

There are films of the grandeur of the event, parades, decorations and the designs submitted to Elizabeth for her gown. Amazing films of the Abby being transformed for the coronation and the rush to send films by helicopter and jet to the rest of the world are among the many topics covered.
This is a wonderful video for lovers of Great Britain, the monarchy, the queen and history.
