  • Description

    Selected originals (offcuts, selected scenes, out-takes, rushes) for story "Britain Mourns" - 52/12.

    This seems to be a cut story from another newsreel - no logo on title though which reads: "King and Queen See Royal Departure". This might be TV material.

    Shot of crowds at airport. Royal car arrives. Princess Elizabeth, King George VI, Queen Elizabeth and Princess Margaret climb out of the car. Camera follows royal party as they cross the airfield. Various shots of the royal party. Elizabeth and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh climb steps to the aircraft. Elizabeth waves at the door. Sir Winston Churchill (?) boards the plane. L/S of aircraft. The royal party disembarks. The King waves. Shots of the royal party walking away from the aircraft. The King looks very ill and worried. The plane takes off as the royal party watch. Ends with a shot of Sagana Lodge.
