To celebrate the platinum anniversary of HM Queen Elizabeth II and HRH Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh, ITV have commissioned a documentary about their wedding in 1947 to be broadcast next year. We would like to speak to police officers who served at the event.
The film will be a joyful celebration of the wedding day itself. We will be weaving together lavish reconstructions with personal memories and expert commentary to examine both how the day unfolded in detail and how it lifted Britain from its post-war gloom. This was an event that united the nation after many harsh years of war and austerity, and it has become the template for Royal Weddings ever since.
Oxford Film and Television is a BAFTA and Oscar-winning production company. We have previously made two films about The Queen for ITV. The first was ‘Our Queen’ which marked HM, The Queen’s Jubilee year of 2012, and the latest was ‘Our Queen at 90’, which celebrated Her 90th birthday.
