Record bosses are hoping the track will finally reach number one second time around as the nation celebrates the royal anniversary in June. It previously missed out on topping the charts when initially issued in the Silver Jubilee week in 1977, with claims since that the list was fiddled to prevent embarrassment to the Royal Family.

Film - 'Chitty Chitty Bang Bang' - Sally Ann Howes - Pinewood Studios
Britain's newest film star was introduced to the world at Pinewood Studios, Iver, Buckinghamshire. She is a sleek, highly-polished, two-ton package of magical beauty named Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. She's the car that Dick Van Dyke drives in "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang", the biggest musical made in England, and in this picture even steals the limelight from Sally Ann Howes, who plays the role of Miss Truly Scrumptious. The film set in Edwardian England is based on Ian Fleming's stories about a magical car, which transforms into a flying machine and hovercraft whenever her zany inventor owner gets into trouble with the comic villains. Finished in brass, copper, aluminium and with a boat-shaped body in red and white cedar, the custom-built 100 m.p.h. star looks like rivalling Genevieve, who made her debut in a film of the same name with Kenneth More and the late Kay Kendall.
