The History of Britain
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 for sure, life for the common people was tough!
In each episode we journey to a momentous period in British history (Tudors, Industrial Revolution, Victorians, and World War II), and see what life was like for the ordinary people from those times.
