Two new books, Britain’s Television Queen and 80 Years Gone In A Flash bring some fascinating and unique insights into Queen Elizabeth on her Diamond Jubilee, and provide excellent material for compelling and unique Diamond Jubilee coverage. Britain’s Television Queen reveals how Queen Elizabeth II and her family have come to terms with television during Elizabeth's reign, and 80 Years Gone In a Flash is the biography of a leading photojournalist, John Jochimsen, who is one of the few surviving people to be with Queen Elizabeth at the moment she became Queen and contains some stunning rare photographs.
Both books provide ideal material for Diamond Jubilee articles for journalists around the world as they contain great unique information and pictures unlikely to be featured before. In fact, when the book first came out in January, the Daily Telegraph ran a hugely popular two page spread national press article Diamond Jubilee: The Moment That Princess Elizabeth Became Queen that featured a few of the photographs. John’s book contains many stunning photographs from his career including one of the Queen and President Reagan on horseback.
Britain’s Television Queen is written by former Times and Financial Times journalist, Bob Crew and this bright and breezy book has some amusing and enlightening gossip and first-hand experiences of Princess Anne, Prince Charles, John Lennon and the Beatles in relation to the Queen. It shows how Queen Elizabeth II was instrumental in bringing the royal family onto the television, and how she has continued to pioneer the engagement with the British public through the small screen.
Many of the royals and TV celebs featured in Bob Crew's book have either been known to him personally, or he has otherwise had occasion to work with them. For example, Bob interviewed HRH Prince Charles for a previous book that he has written.
John Cleese, Barry Humphries, Peter Cook, Spike Milligan and Eamonn Andrews also feature in this television history of the Queen of England on the occasion of her Diamond Jubilee this year, as does the fictional Queen of England, Helen Mirren.
This is a highly original and completely different kind of Diamond Jubilee book providing readers, reviewers, gossip columnists and radio/TV interviewers with some very lively and thought-provoking material - a completely new and different take on Queen Elizabeth II and the role of television in her life. The book also includes a chapter featuring a host of beautiful stamps covering Queen Elizabeth over several decades - images of the stamps also available.
An image bank from both books is available as required for immediate use by journalists as are electronic copies for lifting immediate extracts.
