The House the 50s Built

The House the 50s Built


The House the 50s Built takes a look at the science behind the inventions and innovations that transformed the way we used to live, and helped to catapult the post-war country into the modernity of 1950s Britain. Professor Brendan Walker takes a look at the ingenuity and life-changing technology behind the inventions that took a drab Britain and launched it, under its new young Queen Elizabeth II, into a Technicolor world of the future.
