A lecture for Hornsey Historical Society by John Thompson
Celebrating the 60th anniversary of the Queen’s Coronation, this talk explores Alexandra Palace’s contribution to its televising in 1953. Illustrated with photographs of the outside broadcast equipment at Westminster Abbey, the personalities involved and maps of the route, the excitement of the occasion will be recreated by viewing original tele-recordings on period television receivers.
John Thompson is Chairman of the Alexandra Palace Television Group and Chairman of the British Vintage Wireless and Television Museum and runs a business specialising in the restoration of vintage electronic equipment.
A donation of £1.50 is requested from non-members. Refreshments are available from 7.40pm. The doors close at 8.00pm and latecomers are not admitted.
