The BBC Synopsis of this program:

Dai Smith looks at American photojournalist W Eugene Smith's coverage of the 1950 General Election, suppressed by his employer Life Magazine because of its opposition to the Labour government. In 1950, the American photo-journalist W Eugene Smith came to Britain to cover the general election for Life Magazine, but his photographs were never published. Welsh writer and broadcast Professor Dai Smith goes in search of these lost pictures and discovers how the magazine's opposition to Attlee's radical Labour government caused them to suppress Smith's work.
