- When Queen Elizabeth the Second was crowned on June 2nd, 1953, many of Britain's leading cinematic artists were commissioned to create the only feature-length Technicolor record of the coronation. Narrated by Sir Laurence Olivier, it conveys the sights and sounds, the pomp and pageantry, the very spirit of that unforgettable day. Oscar-nominee and BAFTA-winner, A Queen is Crowned emerges as one of the greatest films of an historical event ever made.
Narrative spoken by SIR LAURENCE OLIVIER
Written by CHRISTOPHER FRY
Musical Adviser SIR MALCOLM SARGENT
Special Music by GUY WARRACK
Played by the LONDON SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
Produced by CASTLETON KNIGHT

May 2012: The studio who make this title, Network, have discontinued the title. What titles there are on the market now sell for £60 plus. But the discontinuation is because Network are re-releasing it with new artwork and a brand new restoration of the only feature-length Technicolor record of the Coronation itself. It's re-released at the end of May for around the £11.00 price though I do think they could have at least released it a couple of weeks earlier.
Also included in this commemorative set is Palaces of a Queen - a 1966 documentary touring the six royal palaces: Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle, St. James's Palace, Hampton Court, Kensington Palace and Holyrood House. Narrated by Michael Redgrave and with a resounding score by Malcolm Sargent, this documentary is a worthy companion piece to A Queen is Crowned.
From a personal point of view the new cover is far better, more dramatic and iconic really,
