5.0 out of 5 stars In the words of her majesty "Amazing", 3 May 2011
Overall this a fantasic dvd that catches every important detail of the day,and also features very informative and precise commentary from Hugh Edwards. The only thing i feel the bbc and the itv dvd's lack, is the build up towards the day itself. There is hardly any interviews with the crowd, and features not much of the really tense moments of the day where we watched the people going into the abbey, and waiting for the bride and groom to appear from clarence house and the goring hotel. I know this is not exactly the main objective of this dvd, but it would have been nice to show the whole bbc and itv footage of the day from start to finnish, as i feel this would have added to the overall ambience of remebering the fantastic day when the world took five to celebrate. But the bbc version of the dvd wins heands down.

5.0 out of 5 stars a great source of inspiration, 31 Mar 2011
a fantastic book, and i am suprised at those on amazon who have given this book a low rating. This book is NOT ABOUT ORIGINAL 60'S MODS!!!!. If you are looking for something authentic to the days of mod originallity, then this is not the book. Many have written thier reviews based upon this, and if they had just read the books title!!!!, then they would have realised that.The days where we could go to brick lane or cambden market, and buy oroginal 60's fred perrys and ben sherman cardigans left over from the 60's is long gone. Many of the old original 60's produce was sold out in the early 80's after the rise of quadrophenia, and now this book is based upon how the youth of today creates the mod style using clothes that are self made, or mixed and matched from various 21st centuary fashion houses. Which is not an easy feat, considering we are now living in the modern britain infatuated with baseball caps, track suits and tastless indie/student fodder. This book is a great homage to those who put love and dedication into living out the glory days, and is a great source of inspiration as to how the mod look can be acchived with a 21st centuary twist. there are Fantastic pictures in this book that will blow you away, and it has been compiled together so that it will be loved by old and young and male and female. A well thought peice of art and publishing.
