This is the award-winning story of Britain, from the arrival of Julius Caesar in 55 BC to the death of Queen Victoria in 1901. Christopher Lee's history of Britain provides the definitive radio account of the events and personalities that have shaped the British nation. From foreign invasions and war to economic crises and social revolution, this is a compelling journey through centuries of dramatic change.
Volume 3, covering the years 1327 to 1547, takes us through a bloody and turbulent time in English history: the Hundred Years' War with France, the Peasants' Revolt, the triumph of Henry V at Agincourt, the Wars of the Roses, and, of course, the reign of the larger-than-life Henry VIII.

Yes, this type of review doesn't leave as much scope as it might. I don't care about films or TV series so can we lose those questions?

Listen and learn.

Another good listen, Christopher Lee gives the information,sometimes in a humorous way, and Ann Massey brings the facts and the humour to life.
