Rare colour footage of Winston Churchill

Rare colour TV footage of Sir Winston Churchill has been uncovered to mark the 50th anniversary of the college in his name at Cambridge University.

In the recording of his remarkably prescient speech at the college the wartime Prime Minister declared his wish for Britain to continue as a world leader in the fields of science and technology.

He said: “More than any other country in the world, Britain must rely on the enterprise and trained ingenuity of her people. Since we have neither the massive population, nor the raw materials, nor yet adequate agricultural land to enable us to make our way in the world with ease, we must depend for survival on our brains, on skilled minds that are at least proportionately equal to those in the United States and Soviet Russia.
