A series in sevenparts
Presented by David Dimbleby 5:If You Don't Like Our Peaches, Quit Shaking Our Tree
As soon as the war ended,
American aid to Britain was cut off. But the illusion that Peace marked a return to the Pre-war balance of power between them was short-lived. Britain now depended on the new superpower across the Atlantic, economically and militarily. 'We either had to hang on to the American apron strings or literally go down the drain' says Robert Cecil , then at the British Embassy in Washington.
Tonight's programme shows how the Cold War gave Britain a new role in the alliance, as an essential forward base for American bombers; but how her own freedom of action was limited - a truth brutally exposed by the Suez crisis of 1956. As the British launched their invasion, President
Eisenhower rang Prime
Minister Eden. 'I can only presume you have gone out of your mind', he said. Film researcher

On a stakeout to catch a psychopathic killer, Det Sgt Tom Valens spots an intruder at a nearby department block. He pursues the man, who draws a pistol, but Valens fires first and kills him. Seemingly, it is a simple case of self defence but when no gun can be found, Valens finds himself accused of murder. His attempts to clear himself uncover a web of conspiracy.
