    Do any of you kind folk out there have a complete recording of the BBC coverage of the 1953 Coronation. I think it was shown by BBC Parliament a few years back.



    It's before the days I got the channel.



    Cheers in advance.

    There is a 1953 Technicolor film of the Coronation on DVD entitled A Queen is Crowned, narrated by Sir Laurence Olivier and running 90 minutes or so, that you can buy quite cheaply on amazon uk. It would be the next best thing if you couldn't get the full length BBC Television version.

    Thanks for that. I have already got that and it was the BBC footage that I wanted as it was repeated in 1977 on BBC2 on Jubilee Day and BBC Parliament showed it in 2002 for Golden Jubilee day I think?



    I'm ever hopeful someone will have recorded it.
