Description

This 3 disc set provides footage for this decade which took us from post-war austerity to a baby boom, “teenage” culture and subsequent consumer boom. Significant events are covered with archive footage from British Pathé including three Prime Ministers occupying 10 Downing Street including Winston Churchill, Suez Canal Crisis, the death of George V and the coronation of Elizabeth II.

Technological developments included the launch of the first satellite - Sputnik, the Polio vaccine, parking meter. Coffee Shops emerged on street corners, Bolton wanderers won the FA Cup and the last ride on the London tram, all which may spark memories for our older generation. Super for purposeful TV watching, prompting conversation between residents and providing information for therapist and activity co-ordinators so they can create bespoke activities focused on this era.
