The award-winning story of Britain, from the arrival of Julius Caesar in 55BC to the death of Queen Victoria in 1901 'Wonderful...This Sceptred Isle has provided one of the greatest treats for listeners in recent years.' Paul Donovan, Sunday Times. Christopher Lee's history of Britain provides the definitive radio account of the events and personalities that have shaped our nation. From foreign invasions and war to economic crises and social revolution, this is a compelling journey through centuries of dramatic change. Volume 3, covering the years 1327 to 1547, takes us through a bloody and turbulent time in English history: the Hundred Years' War with France, the Peasants' revolt, the triumph of Henry V at Agincourt, the Wars of the Roses and, of course, the reign of the larger-than-life Henry VIII. Narrated by Anna Massey, and featuring extracts from Sir Winston Churchill's A History of the English-speaking Peoples read by Paul Eddington, This Sceptred Isle is absorbing, informative and essential history.
