From Britannia under the Romans to the Dark Ages and the invasions of Angles, Saxons, Danes, and Norwegians.
1087-1327: The Making of the Nation
The Crusades, Welsh and Scottish rebellions and the foundations of the modern state - including Magna Carta and the fledgling English Parliament.
1327-1547: The Black Prince to Henry VIII
The Hundred Years' War, the Peasants' Revolt, the Wars of the Roses and the reign of Henry VIII.
1547-1660: Elizabeth I to Cromwell
Elizabeth I's long reign; the Civil War, the execution of Charles I and the establishment of Cromwell as Lord Protector.
1660-1702: Restoration and Glorious Revolution
The return of Charles II, the Great Plague and Great Fire of London, and a ruler from a different country on the throne: William of Orange.
The audio files for this title have been updated and they are now in the correct order.
Narrated by Anna Massey, with extracts from Sir Winston Churchill's A History of the English-Speaking Peoples read by Paul Eddington and Peter Jeffrey, this is the definitive radio account of the events and personalities that have shaped our nation.
