Take a behind-the-scenes look at the staging of the biggest public event ever held on the tidal Thames – the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Pageant.

The 40 minute film, ‘The PLA’s Pageant’, documents the authority’s work to plan, prepare and co-ordinate the safety of the Royal spectacular which involved 1,000 boats and 20,000 people on the water.  It includes unique footage of rehearsals, vessel checks and inside the PLA’s control centre, where the event was run from on the day.

Two years in the planning, the event was devised by the Thames Diamond Jubilee Foundation. Responsibility for ensuring the procession’s smooth running fell to the PLA, working with the Maritime and Coastguard Agency, RNLI, police, fire brigade, passenger boat operators, Environment Agency, ambulance service, and specialists from the recreational boating world.

This DVD is a ‘must have’ for fans of Royalty, pageant spectators and participants alike.

This book is a history of the PLA , specially commissioned to mark the organisation’s centenary on 2009. Written by Nigel Watson, the book is a short introduction to the institution that, after a century of service, still plays an important role in the prosperity of the country and its capital city.

The book covers the origins of the Authority, which brought order to a Port in chaos and remedied years of under investment. It outlines how the PLA helped to keep the Port operating during two world wars, thanks to the hard work, dedication and heroism of its employees. It tells the story of the challenges faced by the Authority during the years after 1945, as a revolution in world shipping led to the eventual closure of the upriver docks and the transformation of the docklands landscape...Read more
