The Queen on the world stage

Duration: 01:36

In 1965, the Queen visited Berlin. The city was the frontline of the Cold War - a small democratic outpost in the middle of communist East Germany. It was just 20 years since Britain and Germany had been at war; but the Queen pledged her support to the isolated West Berliners and received a rapturous response from the crowds.
