Labour Party 1918-1945, The

Synopsis
Illustrates key moments in the Labour Party’s history between 1918 and 1945 and explores the impact of a visual medium on the presentation of politics to a mass audience. Shows, for example, how well Ramsay MacDonald was able to perform in front of camera, an element of his political persona that helps to explain his pre-1913 standing in the Labour movement.
