A series in seven parts about Britain and America.
3: Here Come the British, Bang! Bang!
Late in 1940, an American warship was despatched to Cape Town. Its mission: to Pick up over E50 million in British gold. Though Britain was fighting alone against
Hitler, Congress needed to be convinced that the imperial coffers were empty before it would approve further aid to Britain.
Tonight David Dimbleby tells the story of the impassioned, often bitter, debate that raged in the United States over whether America should get involved in another European war. It ended the night the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, and Churchill, as he put it, 'slept the sleep of the saved'. Film editor GRAHAM SHIPHAM
