Socialist Worker

The British At Work

Issue No. 2241

This is the first of a four-part series, exploring the post-war British workplace covering seven decades of turbulent change.

Kirsty Young presents a series that uses a blend of testimony from ordinary workers and archive footage.

The first episode looks at the period immediately after the Second World War, when there was full employment and a wave of nationalisation across industry.

It was also a period of growing trade unions.

The British At Work— We Can Make It 1945–65 is on from Thursday 10 March, 9pm, BBC2
