Publisher's Summary

This is the award-winning story of Britain, from the arrival of Julius Caesar in 55 BC to the death of Queen Victoria in 1901.

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 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.

Listen and learn.

Another good listen, Christopher Lee gives the information,sometimes in a humorous way, and Ann Massey brings the facts and the humour to life.

Even if you are no historian this is excellent

If you could sum up This Sceptred Isle, Volume 3 in three words, what would they be?

Brilliant, bold, bloody

What was one of the most memorable moments of This Sceptred Isle, Volume 3?

Discovering more about the Black Prince. You expect one te of person and get another.

What does Anna Massey bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Her excellent reading adds passion and authority.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Sorry don't do this

Any additional comments?

Yes, this type of review doesn't leave as much scope as it might. I don't care about films or TV series so can we lose those questions?
