The Queen in Australia a record of the visit by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and his Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh, 1954 ( Visual )
5 editions published between 1954 and 2010 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The first Australian feature length colour film is a classic of its kind. A seemingly endless succession of official functions are skilfully organised by editing events of similar kind into series. The emphasis is not on dignitaries on tour but the ordinary Australian's reaction to the presence of a reigning monarch in their midst for the first time. It captures a time of popular emotion that could not be repeated

A WWII film about children evaculated from Britain and sent to Canada for their safety. The film begins in England with children seeking shelter as anti-aircraft guns roar outside. On their arrival in Canada, they are thrilled by the brightly lit cities, powerful Canadian trains, hot dogs and ice cream. They find, too, that instead of becoming Mounties or cowboys, they have to go to school. The closing sequence shows them learning to ski and skate and preparing for Christmas in their new homes
