General
Parade was a cinemagazine produced by the Central Office of Information for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. Following the successful launch of the technicolor cinemagazine Roundabout in South and South-East Asia in May 1962, it was decided to pilot a similar magazine for distribution in English-speaking Commonwealth territories in Africa, the Caribbean, the South Pacific and the Mediterranean in January 1963.
