That TV advert which mentions the 1948 and the upcoming 2012 London Olympics is quite interesting as it shows harrowing archive footage from 1948 of bomb sites and how the Olympics uplifted the city.

My 2xgreat grandfather died in October 1947 aged 87 at the family home in Camden, North London. He died less that a year before the Olympics so he never got to see them. But he lived during the war and saw in the first couple of years after the end of the war in May 1945. His wife died in September 1943.
