During April and May 2006 "Tory! Tory! Tory! - Outsiders" was screened on BBC4 and BBC 2....

This part one of three BBC Series explored the history of the people and their ideas behind what became known as Thatcherism, and how they changed the face of Britain. The film tells the story of those left in the political wilderness after World War Two, who saw the welfare state as the thin edge of a totalitarian wedge. At first they were seen as cranks, and their ideas - monetarism and a free market - as madness. But gradually they attracted supporters in the political mainstream. And when Margaret Thatcher became leader of the Conservative party, they saw their champion.
