To celebrate Her Majesty's Diamond Jubillee, Network is proud to present a brand new restoration of the only feature-length Technicolor record of the Coronation itself. When Queen Elizabeth the Second was crowned on June 2nd, 1953, many of Britain's leading cinematic artists were commissioned to create this wonderful record of the event. Narrated by Sir Laurence Olivier, it conveys the sights and sounds, the pomp and pageantry, the very spirit of that unforgettable day. Oscar-nominee and BAFTA-winner, A Queen is Crowned is one of the greatest films of an historical event ever made. Also included in this commemorative set is Palaces of a Queen - a 1966 documentary touring the six royal palaces: Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle, St. James's Palace, Hampton Court, Kensington Palace and Holyrood House. Narrated by Michael Redgrave and with a resounding score by Malcolm Sargent, this documentary is a worthy companion piece to A Queen is Crowned.
