Never Had It So Good?

Writer Colin Shindler returns to Manchester to revisit his childhood and tell his own intensely personal, boys own story of a paradoxical year, 1957, the one in which prime minister Harold Macmillan declared that 'most of our people have never had it so good'. In the company of leading historians, he takes a snapshot of 1957 to explore what it was really like to live in Never Had It So Good Britain and to find out whether Macmillan was right.
