ON CAMERA: the fact is, there's caution here over how big the celebration should be. the queen's publicly discouraged what she called "lavish spending" for a national party. and as the bbc put it, no one here at buckingham palace wants the embarassment of planning an extravaganza that only foreign tourists will want to attend.

(1977 archive bunting etc, and royals then)

NARR: HOW TIMES HAVE CHANGED. STREET PARTIES SWEPT THE COUNTRY FOR THE QUEEN'S SILVER JUBILEE TWENTY-FIVE YEARS AGO...WHEN THE ROYAL FAMILY WAS STILL MORE A CONSTANT SYMBOL OF A STEADY BRITAIN - AND LESS A LIGHTENING ROD FOR CONTROVERSY. AS PHOTOGRAPHER REGINALD DAVIS WILL TELL YOU.
"They wanted to see the glamour of the tiara and the beautiful gowns, the fox fur coats////they also wanted to see the informality of royalty/// people were so clamoring for photographs of the whole family,especially the children when they were very young, charles and anne, they were in demand all the time

(charles and di wedding and aftermath)

SINCE THEN THE NATION'S LEARNED THAT FAIRY TALES DON'T ALL HAVE HAPPY ENDINGS. HIGH PROFILE INFIDELITY AND ROYAL DIVORCES LEFT MANY HERE WONDERING IF THE MONARCHY'S MORE SOAP OPERA THAN A SOURCE OF PRIDE.
AND WHILE THE DEATH OF DIANA LET LOOSE AN EMOTIONAL TIDE, THE AFFECTION SHOWN FOR A PRINCESS WHO'D LOST HER CROWN - ONLY SHARPENED THE CONTRAST WITH THE REIGNING QUEEN.

(elizabeth et al contemnporary at workmaybe including eliz at macdonalds)

TODAY, POLLS SHOW ELIZABETH'S WIDELY RESPECTED AS HARD-WORKING. BUT MOST PEOPLE SAY THE WINDSORS LACK A COMMON TOUCH, AND AMONG THE YOUNG,

is out of date; part of the myth of merry england.

SOT SARAH: i've never had anything like that happen before. really,

really weird. not what you expect to see everyday - the queen driving behind you on your driving lesson.
NARR: THE DELAY KEPT THE QUEEN FROM SEEING THE START OF AN AIR FORCE FLYOVER.
