A History of Britain: Forces of Nature (BBC Documentary)
Bringing Britain’s rich history to life, Simon Schama’s unique storytelling describes the triumphs and trials of the monarchy, the effects of warring religions, the expansion of the empire and the decline of Britain as a world power. The story begins around 3000 BC and concludes in 2000.
Forces of nature – Covering 1780 – 1832. Britain never had the kind of revolution experienced by France in 1789, but it did come close. In the mid-1770s the country was intoxicated by a great surge of political energy. Re-discovering England’s wildernesses, the intellectuals of the „romantic generation“ also discovered the plight of the common man, turning nature into a revolutionary force.
