Summary

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 our nation. From foreign invasions and war to economic crises and social revolution, this is a compelling journey through centuries of dramatic change.
Volume 7, covering the years 1760 to 1792, describes the impact of developments in the world outside Britain: revolution in America created a new nation and, in France, changed the face of Europe. At home, George III battles to establish the constitutional monarchy we know today.
