Glamours Golden Age (BBC Documentary)
The story of 1920s London’s Bright Young People is a tale of sex, drink, drugs and a gossip-hungry press. Beautiful and Damned traces the growth of 1920s London’s bright young party set whose antics were enjoyed and scorned in equal measures by a watching nation. And the more artistic of the merry band – Cecil Beaton, Evelyn Waugh and Nancy Mitford among them – saw their work make the characters and attitudes of the era both legend and fable.
