Presented by Jack Whitehall, this one-hour documentary celebrates 70 years of one of the greatest arts festivals in the world – from the idealism of its glorious beginnings in 1947, when the Edinburgh Festival was conceived as a ‘bond of reunion in a disintegrated world’, part of a healing process in the aftermath of the Second World War, to the birth of the Fringe the same year and the creative anarchy that it unleashed.
