"It was like
a morning of brilliant sunlight…"
On the morning of June 7, 1939 the Canadian city of London, Ontario was honoured with a visit by George VI and Queen Elizabeth - the first visit by a reigning monarch and his consort. As the city's most spectacular royal tour of the century, it created an outpouring of affection and patriotism that has never been equaled in London's history.
To commemorate the
Queen Mother's 100th birthday we're very proud to present A Great Day
for London: The Royal Tour of 1939, a special documentary that captures
the magic of this well-loved event. This half-hour program is filled with
priceless colour film footage, rare photographs, radio broadcasts and
interviews with the Londoners who caught a cherished glimpse of their
King and the future Queen Mother.
