Episode 6
 
Over the past six decades, Britain has changed beyond recognition but the final episode of Britain: As Seen On ITV celebrates some of the things for which we still remain famous around the world.
 
Clips from ITV news and documentaries around the country include revealing reports on our beloved Sunday roast in the 1960s, the constantly changing face (and uniform) of the British bobby and, years before the internet, how we used to have to head into telephone boxes to find out the very latest weather forecast. 
 
 
Series overview
 
To help celebrate ITV’s 60th anniversary Britain: As Seen on ITV tells the story of our changing nation through extraordinary real-life footage seen on our screens over the last 60 years. From our changing attitudes to fashion and the food on our plates, pop music and the weather, our homes and our hobbies, the series features rare and forgotten footage often not seen on television since it first aired on ITV, in many cases decades ago. Put together, the clips – largely from news items and documentaries – paint an often quirky picture of how all of our lives have undergone an extraordinary transformation since ITV first hit our screens in 1955.
