For a man who led our greatest transformational government, we know next to nothing about Clem Attlee – who he was, what motivated him, where his passion for socialism originated and the myriad forces he faced down to deliver Labour’s phenomenal 1945 manifesto. This performance breathes life into a man to whom we all owe so much – Attlee was a quiet revolutionary, in politics to ‘do’ something, not ‘be’ something. To know Attlee better is to know what can be achieved today.
