Summer of ’69

This podcast from the National Archives contains a look back at the year in which Neil Armstrong took his ‘giant leap for mankind’, Concorde continued its flight test programme and the hippy culture reached its zenith with the age of the pop festival. However, the summer of ’69 also saw Harold Wilson’s government wrestling with difficult issues such as the sending of British troops to Northern Ireland. This illustrated talk explores the British take on the summer of ’69, using examples from public records to shed light on this eventful time.
