The Rest Is History

170. The Falklands War: The Task Force Sails

The Rest Is History

In the second episode of our Falklands War mini-series, Britain is faced with an Argentine occupation and prepares to go to war.

Margaret Thatcher discovers her inner Winston Churchill - but faces a titanic showdown in Parliament, which sits on a Saturday for the first time since Suez.

The Task Force eventually sails - to huge public support - while the US, France and Chile all lend a hand. 

Come for Tom's Iron Lady impression, stay for his Tony Benn as Dominic talks us through the second instalment in this epic four-parter.
