Diamond Jubilee Thames Pageant in under three minutes


The BBC used a time lapse camera to film the Diamond Jubilee Thames River Pageant, so you can watch every one of the 1,000 ships that took part, sail past in under three minutes.

More than one million rain-soaked people watched the event as the boats weaved their way along the Thames, organisers said.

The Queen's barge travelled among the flotilla of tugs, steamers, pleasure cruisers, dragon boats and kayaks.
