Coronation

The Coronation of Elizabeth II

1953

The coronation of Queen Elzabeth II in 1953 was one of the key events that inaugurated the age of mass television in Britain. It was the first large royal event to be televised. For many in Wales and elsewhere it was their first experience of seeing television at all. The coronation therefore played an important and formative role in defining the way television recorded national events.
