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.
I don't understand what this has got to do with my request. Can you help?
Hi again everyone.
I am still looking for a copy of this if anyone can help. earlb posted by mistake. Any help is very much appreciated.
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.

Channel 4 are showing a 3d version of this Coronation in late November
Thanks to everyone for their efforts but it is the BBC coverage as shown in 1953 and repeated on BBC Parliament that I would like.
Please do reply or PM if you can help.
Just hoping that someone did record the BBC footage of the Coronation. It was shown on BBC Parliament. Willing to buy or trade. Any help please!!
