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.
