A History of Britain: Revolutions (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.
„Revolutions“ Covering 16491689. Political and religious revolutions racked Britain after Charles I’s execution, when Britain was a joyless, kingless republic led by Oliver Cromwell. His rule became so unpopular that for many it was a relief when the monarchy was restored after his death, but Cromwell was also a man of vision who brought about significant reforms.
