High-tech Queen’s 3D Christ­mas mes­sage

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - TELEVISION -

one to be left be­hind in the tech­nol­ogy stakes, the Queen’s 2012 Christ­mas mes­sage will be avail­able to view­ers in 3D. The 86-year-old monarch, be­lieved to be the first royal to use the new broad­cast for­mat, has al­ready recorded the mes­sage, ac­cord­ing to Bri­tish news­pa­per re­ports. The ad­dress will be dis­trib­uted to net­works around the globe, to be screened on Christ­mas Day. Au­di­ences will need a tele­vi­sion with 3D tech­nol­ogy, along with a spe­cial pair of glasses, to view the full ef­fect. The Queen, known to cam­era crews as ‘‘one-take Lizzy’’ be­cause she never re­quires more than a sin­gle record­ing, has filmed a Christ­mas mes­sage each fes­tive sea­son for more than 50 years.
