THE ROYAL WEDDING IN COLOUR OF HRH PRINCESS ELIZABETH AND LT. PHILLIP MOUNTBATTEN: This amazing film of the Royal Wedding was shot by the late Jack Cardiff, a pioneer cameraman working with the then new Technicolor process in the 1940s. It contains never-before-seen footage in full colour of the processions at Westminster Abbey and afterwards at Buckingham Palace of the wedding of HRH Princess Elizabeth and Lieutenant Philip Mountbatten in the autumn of 1947. This lost film becomes available now due to the fact that a copy was given by Jack Cardiff to his friend Ralph Pulley, who worked at Technicolor after the war. It has remained in the Pulley family ownership ever since and its importance was only realised when a conversation took place between Ralph s daughter and Stanley F Mazur, film producer and owner of Celtic Arrow Media. This film as not been digitally enhanced, the footage and soundtrack are as on the original and it provides a wonderful reminder of the times and people involved in the momentous event. THE QUEENS CORONATION: BEHIND CLOSED DOORS: The Coronation in 1953 appeared to be a glittering triumph for the House of Windsor. But behind the scenes there was a story of rivalry at the highest level. In this High Society special we ll discover that Prince Philip was at odds with the Queen Mother and the royal establishment over his desire to modernise the monarchy, and that the old Queen was uncomfortable with her daughter s sudden rise to power. Elizabeth was caught between her husband, who wanted to create a more extrovert, modern image for the monarchy, and the traditionalists in the royal household, who lived in an archaic, unchanging world. This documentary with dramatised excerpts and interviews with leading historians examines how Elizabeth eventually agreed to televise the full coronation ceremony inside Westminster Abbey, against the initial advice of Prime Minister Winston Churchill and the Cabinet. A decision hotly contested by her advisors, it marked a dramatic change in how the monarchy communicated to the public. Unwittingly and innocently, the Queen had given a huge helping hand to the medium that would do so much to undermine her family in later years. AT HOME WITH THE GEORGIANS: Prize-winning author Professor Amanda Vickery sets her sights on the golden age of homemaking the Georgian era. Through dramatic reconstruction she traces the story of the unique relationship Britons enjoy with their homes, arguing that the Georgians preoccupation with décor helped to redefine the part played by men and women in British society. Characters from all walks of life; gentlewomen in their stately mansions, to servants with only a locking box to call their own are bought to life as Amanda reveals the artifacts, letters and diaries of the age where the modern notion of a home was born. THE MANY LOVERS OF JANE AUSTEN Prof. Amanda Vickery returns to mark the 200th anniversary of the publication of Jane Austen s first novel Sense and Sensibility in probably the first film about Jane Austen that begins and ends in Texas, historian Amanda Vickery charts the surprising twists and turns that transformed a minor Regency writer into a global literary brand. On a journey from rural Hampshire, to the family home of Princess Di, from the trenches of the First World War to the lake where Colin Firth emerged in a wet shirt and on to a huge Jane Austen convention in Fort Worth, Vickery encounters Austen s audience over the last 200 years. In each era she discovers how differently Austen has been read by every generation and, with a generous helping of costumes and clips from the great vault of Austen adaptations, she examines why Austen has more lovers today than ever before.
