“The achievements of the ’45 Labour government have largely been written out of our history. From near economic collapse we took leading industries into public ownership and established the Welfare State. Generosity, mutual support and co-operation were the watch words of the age. It is time to remember the determination of those who were intent on building a better world.”

This film was first screened six months after the invasion of Iraq in March 2003 and two years after the invasion of Afghanistan in October 2001. Neither Afghanistan nor Iraq have had peace ever since. In fact, the war has been extended to Syria and other countries. It is timely to re-screen this film which dissects the truth and lies behind the 'War on Terror’. It investigates the discrepancies between American and British justification for 'war' and the facts on the ground in Afghanistan and Washington DC.
