Description

This programme details not only the major political issues that dominated the day, but also key social changes and cultural trends. This hour-long episode chronicles that remarkable year, 1957.

In this challenging year Anthony Eden resigns and Harold Macmillan becomes the new leader of the Tory Party and the country. Egypt takes control of the Suez Canal and reopens it for commercial shipping. This was also a year marked by technological progress as the Cold War superpowers battle for supremacy. The USSR launches its first successful satellite, Sputnik 1, and the Space Race is on! On a lighter note, Stirling Moss competes in the Monaco Grand Prix, and there’s a revolution in the home as new ‘fabulous fifties’ styles in furniture design go on display.
