A very busy day in history, August 14th. In 1935 there was the signing of the Social Security Act and in 1945 it was the end of World War 2.
Here is a one-hour extract from that day, starting with the breathless news from newscast H.V. Kaltenborn and continues with bulletins and celebrations around the country.
Sixty-seven years ago today.
