The War may have been won but there are no spoils of victory in Britain. Rationing is in place, cities are still in ruins thanks to the Blitz and the nation is almost broke.
However the decade begins to change. The Festival of Britain brings confidence to a nation that can get back on its feet.
Using unseen footage, and told through the eyes of the nation’s capital, this film tells the story of hope and growth that was born in adversity.
