Cinema audiences have been treated in recent months to 3D versions of films, using 3D Glasses, like Up, Toy Story and My Bloody Valentine. Next week , however , a figure will be introduced whose appearance as a 3D star was first filmed over 50% a century ago astonishingly, hasn't ever been shown in public before : the Queen.

The photos of the Queen at the Coronation in 1953 and touring Britain was never shown in cinemas as first intended, but instead languished in a film archive.

Shot by two young documentary makers now in their 80s, Bob Angell and Arthur Wooster, it will be shown on Channel 4 next week as the high spot of a week-long season of 3D films.

Mr Wooster spent his life in flicks, including working as a photographer on nine James Bond films, while his boy is also in the business.
When David commented that he was supposed to film the 2006 World Cup in 3D, he believed [*CO]''I've got him, I am going to do something he has never done.' Then he told me, 'I'm sure I did something in 1953 with the Queen'.'

Shot on 2 cameras concurrently to give the 3D effect, it shows the Queen as she has never been seen before.

There is footage of the Queen on her Coronation Day, travelling in the Gold State Coach from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Abbey, as well as shots of that other star of the day, Queen Salote of Tonga, winning the hearts of the Brit public as she braved the rain in an open carriage to wave to the crowds.

'There was a fabulous atmosphere.
Other sequences show the Queen at the Derby and the Highland Games.

Most noteworthy of all, the 2 film-makers also shot the Queen 10 days after the Coronation at Tower Pier, where she was greeting royal bargemen before travelling by river to Windsor.

'She could not have come closer,' claims Mr Wooster on the commentary to the documentary about their film.
by the point the film was completed , however , the fashion for 3D film was dying, and Royal Review never had a theatre release. 'The 3D bubble had burst,' said Mr Angell. 'But we got paid.'

spectators can pick up free 3D glasses from Sainsbury's stores around Britain. However , the programme can still be seen without the glasses, looking almost like a standard image.
