Gareth Gwynn’s Alternative Archive

Gareth Gwynn looks at key moments in history which never happened - from Russia landing the first manned spacecraft on the moon to Neil Kinnock becoming prime minister in 1992.

Remember when Russia landed the first man on the moon? How Tony Blair became European President, and Delia Smith became Pope? Or how the American Writers Guild Strike indirectly led to the election of President Donald J Trump?

Satirist Gareth Gwynn does. Blurring fact and fiction, using genuine archive from the last 50 years, he tells the story of world-changing events that could have happened.
