The Complete, Acclaimed 15 Part Series from the BBC and The History Channel
From the dawn of civilization to the 20th century, A History of Britain: The Complete Collection re-animates familiar tales and illuminates overlooked aspects of England's past.Written and hosted by historian Simon Schama (the best-selling author of Rembrandt's Eyes and The Embarrassment of Riches), this monumental BBC production has been hailed by critics for its colorful- and controversial- approach, which discards timelines and tiresome lineages for a lively look at the personalities and cultures that infuse British history.
From India to Ireland, and from the Norman Invasion to the American Revolution, Schama spotlights the epic themes and towering figures that transformed an island "at the edge of the world" into the greatest empire on Earth, examining the impact of this extraordinary heritage on the modem nation.
All 15 episodes of the landmark series are available on DVD for the first time in this comprehensive collector's set: >
