Lots of behind the scenes information from one of the Ladies in Waiting. Beautiful and interesting. I had thought it was a film of the actual Coronation, it is a documentary about the task of producing the Coronation.

BBC generally has a reputation for top of the line documentaries, and this one certainly fits. It looks behind the scenes at the institution of coronations and the specifics of Queen Elizabeth's coronation sixty years ago, giving details that generally wouldn't have been known at the time. Highly recommended for those with an interest in the Royal Family.
