The Rest is History

From Lately, 10:45 pm on 22 October 2020

This week in the Rest is History - following Labour's historic win in the election over the weekend, we take a look at previous historic elections for the party.

Political historian Michael Bassett joins the programme to talk about the 1935 election, when Labour won for the first time, and the following election in 1938 - both times under the leadership of Michael Joseph Savage.
