1948 Olympics - London’s Austerity Games

Category: Radio 2
This documentary presents memories of the last time the Olympics were held in the UK, 1948, told with a mixture of music, reminiscences and archive.

This is not a sporting story, but the charming, amusing and occasionally thought-provoking story of post-war Britain pulling together for a national cause, and a social commentary on what Britons were doing in 1948, what music they were listening to and what they did for fun.
