A British tradition that goes back almost 50 years, the trooping of the colors for the Queen's official birthday is a spectacle of color and formality. This 73-minute tape shows the 1997 parade in which Queen Elizabeth--decked out in yellow--inspects her troops as they march by in their red coats and tall black helmets. Narrator Julian Tutt helpfully identifies musical pieces, the different troops (marked by their flags), and notable military leaders--all the while giving historical information that reveals the context of the action. From parade preparation through the four ceremonial phases (inspection, trooping of the bands, trooping of colors through the ranks, march by the foot guards) to the aerial maneuvers by the Royal Air Force for the finale, not a detail of the event is passed over. --Kimberly Heinrichs
