A series on Britain and America presented by David Dimbleby
Turning Up the Volume
The final programme in the series brings the relationship up to the present day.
It reveals: the full extent of support given secretly to Britain during the Falklands War - 'you would have been defeated without us', claims the Secretary of the US Navy;
Mrs Thatcher 's rage over the invasion of Grenada - 'like Krakatoa', reports someone dining with her that night; and the divisions created by the Tripoli raid - 'the Americans pushed us to the edge on that one' says one Cabinet member.
The relationship under
Thatcher and Reagan has been based on a shared belief in strong defence. But,
David Dimbleby asks, what happens next if America thinks the Soviet threat is receding.
