extraordinary victory… keep smiling through as Churchill
raises our spirits during the Blitz
dance to the big bands as they provide the soundtrack to land girls, 
rationing and make-do-and-mend
meet the glamorous GIs who stole the hearts of many girls…
experience the heat of the battle as El Alamein and D-Day turn the tide of war…
dance in Trafalgar Square to celebrate victory, 
then experience the poignant moment when soldiers– fathers, sons and brothers-
at last come home…
share the euphoria as a new Labour government sweeps to power, 
and the great experiment of the National Health Service is introduced…
shiver through the great freeze of 1947
then celebrate the wedding of Princess Elizabeth
enjoy the sexy New Look introduced by Dior
and savour the moment when sweets finally came off the ration
 
Relive the times we kept smiling through, in The 1940s.

of our country’s future at the Festival of Britain

experience smog blanketing our cities…
join the crowds as they flock to Buckingham Palace
for the coronation of our new Queen
hear Edmund Hillary describe his conquest of Everest
cheer on Roger Bannister as he achieves the four-minute mile
and roar with approval as the great Stanley Matthews lifts the FA Cup
crowd into a brand-new coffee shop
with a bunch of Teddy boys to listen to rock ‘n’ roll
on a glittering jukebox
be in the audience as Fanny Craddock becomes the first TV Chef
get away from it all in a traditional British resort
and drive along the first motorway
and stroll through a new town
and look forward to a better tomorrow.

THE 1960s
 
Be where it’s all happening in the heart of swinging London
give up National Service and take up nationwide protest 
with the birth of CND
wonder as the first man travels in space
then shiver as a crisis in Cuba brings us close to a catastrophe…

and be among the thousands mourning our wartime leader, 
Winston Churchill
be there as the Beatles conquer the world
go shopping in Carnaby Street
enjoy the success of the Mini car and the mini skirt
visit the pop pirates
and grow your hair long to join the hippies
float across the water in a brand-new Hovercraft
celebrate England winning the World Cup
and the investiture of the Prince of Wales at Caernarvon
and hold your breath while one man takes a small step onto the Moon.
