The coronation of Elizabeth II was an enormous logistical operation, and an event of huge cultural significance. This fascinating documentary reveals the behind the scenes story of the momentous occasion, drawing on hitherto unseen archives and made with the co-operation of Buckingham Palace. The coronation was seen as an opportune moment for the British royal family to establish the meaning of the modern monarchy - reinforcing the idea of continuity and tradition, while establishing the new reign of the young queen and her modernizing consort. But the sheer scale of the event, combined with jockeying by senior figures who felt they should be pivotal, threatened to turn the whole thing into a disaster.
