About this product
- Product InformationHer Majesty Queen Elizabeth II's maiden visit to Australia in 1954 marked the end of one era and the dawn of another. It was post-depression post WWII and Australians came in their millions to bask in the presence of a young and beautiful monarch. Capturing all the glamour and excitement of the time expertly combining 35mm Technicolor film and little seen home movie footage - this insightful and entertaining documentary details The Queens visit, how it touched the very fabric of Australian society and influenced attitudes toward the monarchy. Presented by Lorraine Bayly, narrated by Bert Newton and directed by Maurice Murphy, When The Queen Came To Town not only explores the innocence and charm of a bygone era but celebrates the sheer dedication and passion of the many people who helped make it all happen.
