A week of diverse programmes examining the Margaret Thatcher legacy begins with this chronicle of her "rock'n'roll years".
The music of her decade in power forms the soundtrack to a rich seam of archive film that includes landmark events in the news, sport, television and cinema - the Kings Cross fire, the end of the Cold War, the sinking of the Herald of Free Enterprise, the Tiananmen
Square massacre, the storms of 1987, the falling of the Berlin
Wall, and the famine in Ethiopia which spawned Live Aid and 'Feed the World'. Clips of the Prime Minister in action include some previously unseen on television, and chart her rise, her rule and her fall.
