Professional Camera Problems At Coronation. Sorted.

I was watching a programme, one of many hundreds on currently, recalling the coronation in June 1953.  I chose this particular one because the host is a chap who is very classy but also warmly engaging  as a quiz show host.  Anyhow, he was interviewing real people who had been present in Westmindster Abbey for the great occasion.  Amongst the really interesting folk was one really great old boy who had been a cameraman for the BBC and had been the one to capture the most important image of all time – the actual moment the crown was raised aloft and placed on the head.  What a moment – and yet he’d had a camera spring break just before his big moment.  Something he was prepared for and he got things replaced and sorted in time.  Phew.  That’s where a professional with absolutely trustworthy knowledge of everything camera and equipment based can’t be beaten for the big occasion!
