Product Description
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.

    5Fond memories of watching on TV as a child. Still have deep admiration for Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth II.
    By hlrideout
    Brought back so many memories watching video. I was only 10 and watched with my Grandmother Rideout who was very into all things English royalty which started my interest which continues to this day. My heritage is English on both sides in fact have a verified ancestor that came over on the Mayflower. This same Grandmother was the relative thus the added interest in all things English.

    5Her Majesty
    By Roberta
    DVD arrived yesterday (September 2, 2016) safe, sound, and well packaged. The packaging was easy to open which is always a plus. Since I am a big fan of the British monarchy I am pleased as anything to have this DVD in my collection. The quality of the recording is all that I could ask to have.

    1I wanted a recording of the actual service and ceremony ...
    By Peter Burnett
    I wanted a recording of the actual service and ceremony but this was just excerpts from news clips and other background fluff...almost nothing of the pageantry of the actual coronation...the music and grandeur was missing. Bit disappointment
