Essex, 1945: the Second World War is over. Years of rationing lie ahead – but so too does free healthcare and full employment, holidays by the sea, motorbikes and rock n’ roll. From the 1940s to the 1960s, see how Essex was changed almost beyond recognition. This unique production includes: Chelmsford and Clacton; The new town of Harlow; Saffron Walden, Hockley and Finchingfield; Waltham Abbey, Epping, Romford and Rayleigh.
Featuring footage from the East Anglian Film Archive at the University of East Anglia.
