how is society presented
traditional vs possibility of change
setting 1912 just before WW2
historical devastating change
"Unsinkable, Unsinkable" - "lost class, lost certainty"
mirrors what is going to happen to society
performed after WW2 1945
beavon report (1942)
welfare state (NHS)

traditionalist capitalist vested interests Vs socialist radical change
"capital vs labour agitations"
image of battle
idea they are incompatible
this only increases in the future
"we cant let these bernard shaws and HG wellses do all the talking"

" a man has to look out for themselves"
power and status vs Duty
"it's my duty" (inspector)
