Home movies from be­hind the crown

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - PLAY/ TUESDAY EXTRA -

on ar­chive news reels and never-be­fore-seen home movies and pho­to­graphs, new doc­u­men­tary A Ju­bilee Trib­ute to the Queen by the Prince of Wales re­flects back on Her Majesty’s 60-year reign. Pre­vi­ously un­seen pho­to­graphs and films from Her Majesty’s pri­vate col­lec­tion – many filmed by the Queen – cap­ture fam­ily life. High­lights in­clude footage filmed on Coro­na­tion Day be­hind the scenes at Buckingham Palace that shows Her Majesty jug­gling the dual role of mother and Queen as she walks the cor­ri­dors of Buckingham Palace and poses for of­fi­cial pho­to­graphs.

The Prince also shares footage from fam­ily hol­i­days, in­clud­ing one se­quence filmed by the Queen in which we see a young Prince Charles and Princess Anne play­ing in the sand at Holkham Beach, Nor­folk. Other reels, filmed on board Bri­tan­nia, at Wind­sor and Bal­moral, give the viewer a fas­ci­nat­ing in­sight into the life of the Royal Fam­ily in the 1940s and 1950s. The Prince of Wales adds his own com­men­tary.

Tues­day, 8.30pm, ABC1.
