How the Coronation made TV history

The Queen is marking the 60th anniversary of her Coronation on Sunday - an event watched by an estimated 27m people across Britain.

Thousands of TVs were specially bought for the occasion on 2 June 1953, and it was the first time the majority of the nation watched an event on live television.

Nick Higham reports on a historic day in broadcasting.
