TV of the Week – The 1951 Festival of Britain: A Brave New World

This documentary that was re-run this week, is actually from 10 years ago, and just shows how the BBC certainly “don’t make ‘em like they used to do”.

My Lord, with the exception of a slight, though true, anti-Tory comment towards the end as to why the main buildings, with the exception of the festival hall, were to be torn down; it was a fair, enlightening, and most importantly, upbeat celebration of all things from the UK.

I’ve been in the festival hall before, several times, but never realised why it was actually built – now I know.
