In June 1969, the BBC aired a documentary called “Royal Family”, which did not go well with Buckingham Palace. In fact, the film was banned by Queen Elizabeth II and has not been seen since 1972. It is due to be uploaded to YouTube this week.
The 1969 documentary, which was based on a behind-the-scenes 43 hours of showing the royal family under normal circumstances, was uploaded to YouTube by an unknown user. According to a report by Tatler, someone was seen a few thousands of times just before the video was viewed on Thursday due to a copyright complaint being filed.
What is so scandalous about the film? It shows the royal family things like water skiing and barbecuing from the outside, very clearly shifting the “rich” to wealthy emperors, according to PR Tatar. But those who believe in the monarchy do not want their rulers to be human. Kings and queens are considered special. And the scenes of the queen buying ice cream for her son only to complain that it would make a mess in the car were apparently not received by upper-class Brits. The queen does not need to handle the money.
But the film has historical significance, with scenes of the Queen’s meeting with the Prime Ministers of Jamaica and Tanzania. He visited Britain in the 1950s after meeting Queen Elizabeth’s President Richard Nixon and having a casual conversation about travel, TV, and the world becoming more complex.
The film is a far cry from the mid-1950s version of the British monarchy that was presented to the world with Flight of the White Heron, a dramatically released documentary in 1954 featuring Queen Elizabeth touring the British Commonwealth countries As was shown, with all the pomp and circumstance you would expect from such an effort.
The 1969 “Royal Family” documentary can be pulled from YouTube, but once uploaded something rare, it’s difficult to get rid of it completely from the Internet. If you search YouTube now, you are still not able to find copies of the film, as Gizmodo has searched for uploading our search which has taken place in the past.
Back in 1969, a BBC documentary aired that showed the inner workings of the royal family’s life. So, in fact, a staggering 30 million viewers watched it. Yet while her subjects were happy to have a chance to peek behind the royal curtain – creating a new sense of being closely connected with the family in a traditional way – the queen is presumed to have agreed to the film, later Requested that it should never be aired again.
Now, however, the film has resumed, with the Times reporting that it was leaked to YouTube this month by an unknown user. It stayed on stage long for a few thousand spectators to watch the 110-minute program, which was titled Royal Family. It is not known how the user obtained the footage, which is believed to be protected under Crown’s copyright.
The video was removed by YouTube on 28 January, brought to the attention of Buckingham Palace and the BBC, who submitted a copyright claim. A Palace source in the Times was quoted as saying: ‘It should not be on YouTube, and if it does show up, we would expect it to be taken down.’ Claim. When a copyright claim is filed, we immediately remove this content, as is the case with this upload. The BBC reportedly declined to comment.
The film was compiled from 43 hours of footage filmed over the course of a year, which at the time cost £ 150,000 (around £ 2.5 million in today’s money). Some of the PR practice devised by Sir William Heseltine, then the Queen’s press secretary, was expected that the documentary would present the royals in a human light – part of a plan by Heseltine to raise money in favor of the public in court language. . It recently returned to public consciousness when the film was fictionalized in Season 4 of The Crown.
The film Black and White was originally broadcast on the BBC in June 1969, the week before ITV aired a color version. Despite its success in ratings, many senior figures worried that it compromised a sense of mystery and security while keeping the Royal family at a distance. Sir David Attenborough, a BBC controller, accused the documentary director Richard Coston of ‘killing the monarchy’. Since 1972, the film has never been screened in full, although some clips of footage were used at the ceremony of the 2011 Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
