More about this programme
Despite the passage of 25 years since The Queen first took the salute as sovereign, the ceremony remains very much the same, unchanged virtually in form and in season in each new reign since the days of Queen Victoria. It was her birthday - May 24 - that roughly set the time of year.
About BBC Four Collection programmes
Programmes are selected, in part, for their historical context and reflect the broadcast standards and attitudes of their time, which may not accord to some current BBC editorial guidelines. We aim to select programmes which can be shown in their entirety but in some cases edits are required. In these cases, edits are kept to a minimum and are made only for technical reasons.
