British Pathe News - A Year To Remember 1953 [DVD]
This was the year in which the Cold War began in earnest. Russia caught up with America in the nuclear bomb stakes; the Korean War ended in stalemate; Joseph Stalin was mourned in Russia, while back in the States, Americans thought they could see a Red under every bed; and the French met resistance in Vietnam, during a chain of events that would lead to the Vietnam War. In Britain, the Royal Family suffered another blow with the loss of Queen Mary, but the whole country came out in celebration for the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, that gracious young lady so suddenly burdened with the throne.
