Leonard Miall’s BBC Report on Marshall Plan Speech

1947
   
Author:  BBC

Subject: Postwar, Marshall Plan
Collection:



As the BBC’s first Washington correspondent between 1945 and 1953, Leonard Miall played a significant role in promoting the Marshall Plan for American aid to Europe. The Marshall Plan speech was largely ignored by the American press but Miall, having been briefed by Dean Acheson, immediately grasped the significance of Marshall’s words. In this audio he described the Marshall Plan as a “totally new continental approach to the problem of Europe’s economic crisis.”
