Jens Richter, CEO, FremantleMedia International said: “The Coronation is a truly special film. It is not only a fascinating insight into the history of the Crown Jewels and the Coronation ceremony, it has the ultimate commentary from Her Majesty The Queen who recalls this momentous event firsthand. It is a great privilege to be working with Atlantic Productions to bring The Coronation to a worldwide audience.”
Anthony Geffen, CEO of Atlantic Productions said: “The 1953 Coronation was a defining moment in modern history. To have The Queen tell us, for the first time, her own personal experience of this global event is a piece of television history. We are honoured to have been able to create this lasting historical document and are hugely appreciative of the collaboration with The Royal Household, our broadcast partners and FremantleMedia International.”
It is really exciting that even more audiences will be able to see this incredible piece of television history.
