This audiobook continues the award-winning BBC Radio 4 series of the story of Britain, from the start of the 20th century to the present day. Christopher Lee's history of Britain, This Sceptred Isle, provided the definitive radio account of the nation from the arrival of Julius Caesar to the death of Queen Victoria. This Sceptred Isle: The Twentieth Century continues the story, taking us through decades of whirlwind change and technological advancement in a diverse and colourful country on the brink of a new millennium. Volume 4, covering the years 1959-1979, includes the erection of the Berlin Wall, putting the first man on the moon, the Vietnam War, and the astonishing success of a young man called Cassius Clay. Closer to home, the Beatles generated worldwide hysteria and Profumo caused a scandal.
Don't miss out on the rest of the Sceptred Isle series.
