In Pictures: The Queen's Christmas broadcasts
1960s: World peace

From 1960 onwards the Queen pre-recorded her Christmas message instead of delivering it live. Her 1960s speeches focused on the need for the world to strive for peace and understanding. In 1969 the Queen chose not to broadcast her message but, following a public outcry, the tradition was reinstated in 1970. (Picture: 1961)
