British Pathe News - A Year To Remember 1951 [DVD]
This was a year of contrasts. The stalemate in Korea cast a shadow over world affairs,as did the growing menace of nuclear weapons and an escalating arms race, and there was trouble with Iran when the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company was nationalised. But it was also the year in which Britain raised its head and smiled again. For many glorious months on the South Bank we were enthralled by the Festival of Britain. We hoped and calmed and looked to the future. And, in politics, the year saw Britains first majority Labour government rejected at the polls, returning Winston Churchill to power.
