Summary
  • Narrator, Anna Massey
  • The award-winning series, specially written for BBC Radio 4 by the historian Christopher Lee, tells the story of Britain from the arrival of Julius Caesar in 55BC, through to the death of Queen Victoria. Narrated by Anna Massey, it features extracts from Winston Churchill's 'A History of the English-speaking Peoples' read by Peter Jeffrey and Paul Eddington. Thereafter, a vivid account of the Twentieth Century continues the story of Britain, taking us through decades of whirlwind change and technological advancement to more recent times including the Thatcher years, the Falklands War and the era when Gorbachev was influencing world affairs. Narrated by Anna Massey with Robert Powell, it is an authoritative and compelling account of one of the most exciting and fast-moving periods in Britain's history
