The History of Britain S1/2

Synopsis

Tony Robinson takes a fresh and humorous look at British history ‘from the bottom up’. Instead of the usual stories of the powerful, rich and famous, this is history through the eyes of the common people. We explore their everyday lives: how they washed, ate and made a living; and also how the behaviour of those who ruled the land affected them. One thing is for sure, life for the common people was tough!
Each episode covers a momentous period in British history: the first series covers the Tudors, Georgians, Victorians and World War II while the second series looks at Roman Britain, the Middle Ages, the Edwardians and the 1950’s.
