BBC ushers in The Coronation

Smithsonian Channel in the US and ABC in Australia are coproducing The Coronation

BBC1 in the UK will tell the story of the Crown Jewels and their ancient ceremony as part of a Royal Collection Season airing across the pubcaster’s TV and radio channels.

The Coronation (1×60’), made by Bafta and Atlantic Productions, is a coproduction with Smithsonian Channel in the US and ABC in Australia and distributed by FremantleMedia International.
