Saturday Film Club: The British era at Volkswagen from 1945 to 1949

If you are familiar with motoring history, you know that the origins of Volkswagen were somewhat dark. However, by the end of WW2, the factory, or at least what was left of it, found itself in the British Zone of occupation.

Enter Major Ivan Hurst - the man who saved Volkswagen. In this fascinating documentary, he takes us from the period at the end of the conflict to the late 1940s when the place was handed back to German control.
