  • The Queen in 3D

    The Queen in 3D

    The incredible story of young film makers Bob Angell and Arthur Wooster, as they experimented with the technology of the future, using a pioneering 3D camera rig to film a remarkable 3D colour newsreel they named 'Royal Review'.

    Their incredible footage includes the Queen attending a variety of Royal engagements in the weeks leading up to and after the Coronation in 1953: a very Royal Epson Derby in which the Queen's own horse competed; a trip down the Thames on the Royal Barge; a visit to Edinburgh; and the glittering Coronation Procession itself, with the Queen in her golden coach making her way to and from Westminster Abbey.

    While Bob and Arthur reveal the story behind their film, historians, royal biographers and eye-witnesses give a sense of what it was like be there as they recall their poignant and often humorous accounts of the events.

    And Bob and Arthur shoot new 3D footage of the Queen today using state-of-the-art video 3D cameras. Bob is invited to Buckingham Palace to film Her Majesty at a Royal Garden party and it turns out to be just as rainy as Coronation Day itself. And Arthur does some bird-watching, following the Queen to the historic swan-upping ceremony on the Thames, more than 50 years after he first filmed her in 3D on the river for 'Royal Review'.

  • The Queen in 3D

    The Queen in 3D

    In 1951, the BFI commissioned four short 3D films for the Festival of Britain and their success spawned a new movement of 3D documentary makers, Bob Angell and Arthur Wooster among them.

    Royal Review - Bob and Arthur's cutting-edge 3D newsreel of the Queen's Coronation - is just one of a treasure trove of 3D documentaries that has been uncovered for this programme.

    What those ground-breaking filmmakers chose to turn their cameras to conveys a great deal about Britain in the early fifties.

    This programme reveals not only more of the Queen, but of the nation in post-war times.

    More footage from the 'Royal Review' shows the Queen, in glorious 3D, arrive at the Derby, the bookies at work, the crowds loving the occasion and the race itself. Would the Queen's own horse, Aureole, win the race? Or would Britain's greatest jockey ever, Gordon Richards, finally triumph after 27 previous Derbys?

    After the devastation and deprivation of war, early 3D films followed the rebuilding of industrial Britain, with huge chemical plants dazzling in 3D and vast machines turning farmland into coal mines in 'Sunshine Miners'.

    Adding a touch of glamour and relief, the Queen Mother is filmed at Heathrow and going on holiday by flying boat to Madeira, all in 3D technicolor.

    The film 'Black Swan' goes back to 1952 to see Dame Beryl Grey dance Swan Lake in 3D.

    Bob and Arthur continue their search for the perfect 3D close-up of the Queen today, and the final scenes of Royal Review complete the 3D picture of her Majesty and her country more than five decades ago.

  • Flesh for Frankenstein

    Flesh For Frankenstein

    As part of Channel 4's week of 3D programmes, the 3D version of Paul Morrissey's macabre, wacky 70s take on the Frankenstein story, starring Udo Kier and Joe Dallesandro.

    This is the story of Baron Frankenstein's desire to create a super-race of humans by making the perfect man and woman from bits of other corpses. Their sole purpose will be to procreate and literally give birth to his dream. He needs a brain to make them function and soon finds what appear to be the perfect victims.

    Credits: Joe Dallesandro, Monique Van Vooren, Udo Keir In Flesh for Frankenstein, Produced by Andrew Braunsberg, A Film Written and Directed by Paul Morrissey
