The Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II

This set of magnificent colour newsreels "Elizabeth Is Queen" shows the Royal Coronation in exactly the same fashion that it was first broadcast to the world, including the wonderful original British Pathe narrations. British Pathe had already recorded Princess Elizabeth on a global tour and had been following the monarchy since Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee! Also on this collection you can find a newsreel review of The Queen's first year on the throne, and "Britain Mourns" the original newsreel announcing the dead of King George VI and his daughter's subsequent accession to the throne.
