Jubilee and Beyond (1977)


This documentary is a record of the visit by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh to Victoria in 1977. In particular it covers the welcome by 18,000 school children in Royal Park.

Curator’s notes

A straightforward record of the events and ceremony of the visit, which was a major event at the time, as can be seen by the crowd of media surrounding the royal couple, and the staged events with tens of thousands of cheering children. It is well shot with a number of cameras. There is no narration.
