Summary
Today, much of the planet's population lives in a British-shaped world. How did this clutch of islands off the coast of Europe come to dominate the globe? The British presents the history of the British Isles from Stonehenge to World War Two using gripping drama reconstruction, the latest CG, time-lapse and aerial footage. Superpower covers Captain Cook's Australia discovery, technological innovation and social unrest during the Industrial Revolution, and the Crimean War.
