I am writing my PhD thesis on Queen Elizabeth II’s Golden and Diamond Jubilee and am therefore in need of your help. My thesis looks into the broadcasts of the Jubilee 2002 and the Jubilee 2012 on BBC and ITV. I am interested in the question of how the British Royal Family is represented in these TV broadcasts as I am trying to find out how people are supposed to remember these decisive moments in the British Royal Family’s history. I’ve already done some research in archives, but not all of the videos that I need for my thesis is available there. I am quite desperate since I cannot properly conduct my research if I can’t access more videos of these events.
Therefore I am asking for your help: Does anyone of you own (private) TV recordings of the BBC and ITV broadcasts of these events and would be able to provide them? Of course I would be more than happy to make up for any costs that you would have. Or does anyone have an idea, where I might try to find recordings? Your help would be a precious contribution to the completion of my thesis and I am extremely thankful for any advice, ideas or suggestios.
Thanks in advance and best regards from Germany
