In honour of The Queen's Diamond Jubilee, BBC Motion Gallery brings you a short film of Her Majesty's Coronation using original footage from deep within our extensive archive.
Not only do we see the pomp and the ceremony, but also the hard graft of ordinary British subjects as they strive to make the great day as memorable as possible.
We also see the dedication and loyalty of hundreds of thousands of people as they line the streets to celebrate the accession of their new Queen.
