The story of Coronation Day - 20 years ago this week.
On 2 June 1953 Queen Elizabeth II's Coronation was celebrated with traditional splendour. This film is a colourful record of that day in London. It began in the early hours when, after weeks of elaborate preparation, the processions formed up and the vast crowd of spectators took up their places along the route. The film reaches its climax with the centuries-old service in Westminster Abbey as the Sovereign is crowned.
Commentary written by JOHN PUDNEY and spoken by Leo Genn

The first visit by a Western symphony orchestra to the People's Republic of China.
In March this year the London Philharmonic Orchestra, with conductor John Pritchard, toured China as guests of the government. No Western symphonic music had been played publicly in China for seven years; since the Cultural Revolution, in fact, when the Chinese had decided that the European tradition was irrelevant to their needs.
In nine days the London Philharmonic Orchestra gave concerts and public rehearsals in Peking, Shanghai and Canton, playing works by Elgar, Vaughan Williams, Haydn and Beethoven and Brahms's Violin Concerto with soloist Ida Haendel.
Entertainment laid on by the hosts included a rehearsal by the Peking Central Philharmonic Society, a performance by the Shanghai Ballet Company, a concert by Shanghai schoolchildren, an acrobatic display and a visit to a People's Commune.
The BBC was able to film freely at all times.
