The British

This is the story of Britain’s journey from Stonehenge through invasion and conquest to become an undisputed superpower in the 19th Century and a defender of freedom in the modern world.
Narrated by Ioan Gruffudd, and told through the eyes of the people involved, it is the story of how this small group of islands came to forge a nation, dominate the globe, and invent the modern world.
