The People's Thatcher

Andrew Neil presents a portrait of Margaret Thatcher as reflected by voices from the archive of those who lived through her premiership, both supportive and opposed.

Andrew Neil presents a portrait of Margaret Thatcher through archive recordings of the people she governed, both those who supported and voted for her and those for whom she became a figure of loathing. The programme traces some of the key events of her premiership, from its earliest moments to the Falklands War, the Miners' Strike and the Poll Tax, and on to her eventual fall from power. And it explores how she engaged with the electorate both in person and through the media.
