BBC S&PP restores Coronation footage 

BBC Studios and Post Production’s Digital Media Services team has digitally restored the original black and white televised film footage of the Queen’s Coronation

 The footage was first broadcast on 2 June 1953.

 Amounting to 7 ¼ hours of coverage, the remastered Coronation will be shown by BBC Parliament on Sunday 2 June, 60 years after its original broadcast.

The project was commissioned by BBC Information & Archives as part of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Celebrations.

 Some 45 reels of negative black and white footage was ultrasonically cleaned, then transferred, digitised, graded, grain reduced and dust busted.
