In a series of 13 programmes James Cameron reflects two decades which are both history and living memory.
3: Waiting for the Sunrise
Today, 23 years ago, dear Grandmama died. I wonder what she would have thought of a Labour Government.
Thus King George V wrote in his diary when Ramsay Mac-Donald and the Labour Party took office for the first time in 1924. Would it, as some people hoped, bring a new era of equality and social justice, or was it going to open the flood-gates of bloody revolution?
JAMES CAMERON finds some of the answers from the people who voted the Socialists into power, ate lobster suppers at society balls or got the tawse at school; who toured Shakespeare around the provinces, heard Albert Whelan at the music-hall, listened to Election results on their crystal sets, and flew to Paris by aeroplane.
