TNA Podcast: Festival of Britain

In this short podcast TNA staffer Briony Paxman explains the records of the 1951 Festival of Britain Office in WORK 25 which documents all stages of the organisation and planning.

If the Festival is only a name to you get a better idea of it in the Pathe Newsreels here and here. Rain combines with monochrome film to give a less than exciting perspective on the event.
