Summary
In 1951, the Festival of Britain celebrated a more egalitarian and peaceful society. Nevertheless young men were still called on to fight as conflicts erupted in Malaya, Korea, Cyprus and Suez. Then as the nuclear threat increased, protestors took to the streets. This was the era of the Angry Young Men, literate rebels; also of the Teddy Boy, creator of distinctive fashion, by representing a culture of violence and discrimination as seen in the Notting Hill race riots. Rock-and Roll produced Britain's first true pop stars. Alan Sillitoe, John Osborne, Joan Bakewell, Tommy Steele and Cliff Richard recall aspects of the decade, as do National Servicemen, Teddy Boys and the black community of Notting Hill
