KUALA LUMPUR: National Geographic will produce a documentary on the Malaysian monarchy and the coronation of Seri Paduka Baginda Sultan Mizan Zainal Abidin ibni Al-Marhum Sultan Mahmud Al-Muktafi Billah Shah, the country’s 13th Yang di-Pertuan Agong.
The initial footage of the documentary would be completed a few weeks before the coronation on April 26, said Culture, Arts and Heritage Minister Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim.
The whole documentary would be ready after the coronation.
The National Geographic Channel (NGC) would air the film at a later date to introduce Malaysia to the world in conjunction with Visit Malaysia 2007 and the country’s 50th National Day.
Dr Rais said the documentary was a collaboration between the NGC and Malaysia’s National Film Corporation and would be among 11 programmes slated for the King’s coronation celebrations.
“The filming of the coronation would be done on the day of the King’s installation.''
