Channel 4 is to show previously unseen footage of the Queen shot in 3D during her coronation year. The two hour-long shows will tell the story of two men – now in their 80s – who filmed the 3D newsreel. Special glasses needed to view them will be given out free in Sainsbury’s stores before they air later this year.
The programmes will be shown in Danish ColorCode 3D, which looks almost like an ordinary image when viewed without the glasses, which have an amber and a dark blue lens. The programme will be part of a 3D week on C4.
