LDVideo | Party political broadcasts from the 1950s: Samuel, Arlott and Grimond

The party political broadcast (PPB for short) divides the anoraks from the average. Here at Voice Towers we try to cater to both, but this post’s most likely to pique the inerest of the former, as we rewind more than half a century, and recall some of the PPBs of yesteryear…

1951: Viscount Samuel (alas, this one’s brief and with poor sound quality)

(Available on YouTube here.)

The Liberal Answer (1955) with Frank Bowers & John Arlott, who found greater fame as a cricket commentator

(Available on YouTube here.)

Jo Grimond “talks to you straight” (1959)
