The Spirit of '45 | 2013
1945 was a pivotal year in British history. After defeating fascism, the people of Britain sought a more equal society in which the elites did not control all the resources and the working classes had access to healthcare, housing and social care. Under a newly elected Labour Government led by Clement Atlee and spearheaded by visionary Health Minister Aneurin "Nye" Bevan, a new Britain was created in a few, short years. This documentary illuminates a period of unprecedented community spirit in the United Kingdom, the impact of which endured for many years and which may yet be rediscovered.
