Christopher Lee's history of Britain provides the definitive radio account of the events and personalities that have shaped the British nation. From foreign invasions and war to economic crises and social revolution, this is a compelling journey through centuries of dramatic change.
Volume 2 covers the years 1087 to 1327, a time of wars between the English and the Scots, of Crusades and of civil war. Yet in amongst the fighting lay the foundations of the modern state: the Magna Carta and the calling of the first parliament.

"A good listen"
This BBC series is both entertaining and informative. The narrator Anna Massey really brings the story to life.
Absolutely, in fact I have done on numerous occasions. Its clear introduction to history and the authority of the narrators.
How the change over amongst the Normans worked.
All of them.
Yes, and it is possible because it is not overlong.
