Bridgeman Images are proud to share information about our collaboration with Jenny Borthwick and Unseen Footage Ltd on their production of The Queen Unseen, broadcasted on ITV.

ITV was developing new programme ideas and concept for The Queen Unseen was one of them. The documentary was only going to be commissioned if they could find sufficient material to support its theme.

The brief was simple: find footage of Queen Elizabeth that, if possible, it could be proven had never been broadcast before.

After viewing a number of clips the choice fell on a short film held in the private archive of the painter Philip de László.

After the confirmation that the clip has never been broadcasted before, the client then decided to acquire a semi-exclusive license.
