Example text

The era of cinema and radio communications for all and television (for a very few) transformed the role of the media in most people’s lives and would extend it dramatically after the war. Depression years notwithstanding, as the quote at the head of this chapter illustrates, tourism interpreted as leisure travel and the holiday trades grew strongly in the inter-war years. Such growth would provide a springboard for future development just as soon as post-war conditions allowed. The inter-war years witnessed the wide growth of socialist ideals and thinking about the role of holidays and leisure in society that in many ways failed to develop in the UK after the war, notwithstanding or perhaps because of a Labour Government acting according to socialist principles.

Bill Haley’s Rock Around The Clock hit the number one hit spot via a film Blackboard Jungle in 1955. The ‘pill’ was made available commercially in 1961 offering ‘safe sex’ for the first time and the previously fairly rigid sexual moral code was relaxed as the 1960s proceeded. Also in 1961 the Beatles released their first LP. The birth rate was soon falling and traditional large families were split up as people moved to find better paid work and there were more small and single households. A seemingly insatiable consumer interest focused on consumer durables, especially cars and television, and it was accompanied by a rapidly growing demand for leisure services and especially holiday tourism.

By 1938, it is estimated that the number of buses and coaches exceeded 50 000 and that 37 million passengers were carried on long distance routes in 1939. Although private car travel was increasing rapidly, the total number compared with post-war developments was still modest, rising from 132 000 at the beginning of the war in 1914 to two million registered private cars in 1939. The numbers doubled in the 1930s, however, notwithstanding the depression years. People went on holiday mainly by public transport to destinations in Britain, usually by the seaside.
