518    Originally produced by National Film and Sound Archive of 
       Australia in 1973. 
520    On 20 October 1973, the Sydney Opera House was officially 
       opened by Queen Elizabeth II. From conception to 
       completion, it had taken more than 15 years and over 
       {dollar}100 million. A remarkable feat of engineering 
       skill and innovation, this striking and imaginative 
       building captured the world's interest and is considered 
       by many to be among the great architectural achievements 
       of the 20th century. In the years since its completion, 
       the Sydney Opera House has become one of the most 
       identifiable of Australia's icons - ranking with the 
       Sydney Harbour Bridge, Uluru, the koala and kangaroo. The 
       construction of this architectural masterpiece was 
       recorded by the Australian Commonwealth Film Unit from its
       inception. The resulting documentary has been called The 
       Fifth Facade - a reference to the roof which is the 
       building's most distinctive feature. The fifth facade 
       documents the history of the Opera House, from the 
       selection of the site at Bennelong Point to the official 
       opening. The commentary of Jorn Utzon, the Danish 
       architect who won the worldwide competition for the 
       original building design, offers insights into his vision 
       for a construction appropriate to the to the site it 
       occupied and the functions it was to serve. He details the
       unique structural and aesthetic problems that had to be 
       solved to make his vision a reality. A Film Australia 
       production. 2011 National Film and Sound Archive of
