In a series of 13 programmes James Cameron reflects two decades which are both history and living memory. 4: Happiness Time
This was the golden age, wasn'it, with a stable Conservative government set for five reasonable years. This was supposed to be happiness time. So a lot of people thought when the first Socialist government was soundly beaten at the polls with the help of the ' Red Letter.' But was it?
JAMES CAMERON finds some of the answers from the people who ruled the Empire and marvelled at the Empire Exhibition: who agonised over the problem of to bob or shingle their hair: who mourned the passing of the hansom cab and rode in the first Austin Sevens; who gaped at the experimental ' talkies.' and who believed that a vote for the Socialists meant a vote for Moscow.
