BBC - A History Of Britain
مجموعة حلقات أكثر من رائعة بتحكي عن تاريخ بريطانيا بشكل مفصل
Hailed as one of the "Top Ten Television Events of 2001" by The New York Times.
From the dawn of civilization to the 20th century, A HISTORY OF BRITAIN re-animates familiar tales and illuminates overlooked aspects of England's past. Written and hosted by historian Simon Schama (the bestselling author of Rembrandt's Eyes and The Embarrassment of Riches), this monumental The History Channel®/BBC co-production has been hailed by critics for its colorful--and controversial--approach, which discards timelines and tiresome lineages for a lively look at the personalities and cultures that infuse British history.
From India to Ireland, the Norman Invasion to the American Revolution, Schama spotlights the epic themes and towering figures that transformed an island "at the edge of the world" into the greatest empire on earth, examining the impact of this extraordinary heritage on the modern nation.
All 15 episodes of the landmark series are available on DVD for the first time in this extraordinary collector's set that belongs in the library of every history buff.
(circa 3100 BC - 1000 AD)
From Neolithic villages like Skara Brae to the arrival of the Romans and the Viking invasions of the 8th century, A HISTORY OF BRITAIN opens with a whirlwind look at the forces that defined life in England in the years before the Battle of Hastings.
(circa 1000 - 1087)
The path of Western Civilization changed in nine hours. Without William the Conqueror's victory in 1066, Britqain might well have been a Scandinavian province. But the Battle of Hastings made Britain part of an Anglo-Norman empire that, in time, overshadowed even the kings of France.
(circa 1087 - 1216)
The great Norman empire tore itself apart over questions of who should rule. Out of this bloody struggle emerged a new dynasty, one that produced three of the most famous and misunderstood kings in British history: Henry II, Richard I, and John.
King Edward the Confessor
(circa 1216 - 1348)
In the 13th century, the people of Britain found their voice: proud, defiant, and nationalistic. Its language derived not from idealism, but as a response to the subjugation in the campaigns of Edward I to extend his authority over Wales, Scotland, and Ireland.
(1348 - 1500)
The plague arrived in England in 1348 and killed over 1 million people - a third of the population - in just over a decade. But it also paved the way for a series of radical reforms that saw Britain stripped of its feudal remnants and ready to face the future by 1500.
(circa 1500 - 1558)
Under Henry VIII, loyalty to one's faith was treason and loyalty to one's king was heresy. Henry's break with the Church marked the beginning of an extraordinary period that saw a nation largely at peace with its Catholic soul bribed, tortured, and cajoled into accepting Protestantism.
Robert the Bruce
The Body of the Queen
(1558 - 1603)
Elizabeth I led a Protestant nation to greatness in a hostile, Catholic world, all the while deflecting intense pressure to marry and conceive an heir. Her success stands in marked contrast to the fate of her cousin, Mary, Queen of Scots.
The British Wars
(1603 - 1649)
Charles I ascended to the throne in 1625 with a firm belief in the Divine Right of Kings. This almost immediately put him at odds with the Parliament, and their struggle soon expanded to every corner of the British Isles.
(1649 - 1689)
England emerged from 50 years of civil wars a kingless republic led by Oliver Cromwell, yet the fighting was far from over. Cromwell sent troops to Scotland and Ireland, and after his death and the restoration of the monarchy, a brief period of peace came to an end during the reign of James II.
Mary Stuart, Queen of Scots
Queen Elizabeth I
(circa 1690 - circa 1750)
England in the 1690s saw the victors of the "Glorious Revolution" celebrating the dawn of a new era under William III, while in Scotland the Jacobites still supported the deposed King James II. The new Britain was built upon money and commerce, not God.
The Wrong Empire
(circa 1750 - circa 1800)
With political stability and commercial prosperity at home, Britain turned its sights outward. The Wrong Empire travels from the back streets of revolutionary Boston to the slums of Calcutta to chronicle the astonishing transformation that followed. It's a story of exploration and daring - but also of exploitation and conflict.
Forces of Nature
(circa 1780 - circa 1832)
Led by the radical intellectuals of the "romantic generation," Britain experienced a flowering of political discourse in the late 18th century, based on an appreciation of nature and the common man. But while similar forces led to revolution in France, England avoided that bloody fate.
King George III
Victoria and Her Sisters
(1830 - circa 1910)
In 1837, the 18-year-old Queen Victoria ascended to the throne in the midst of a radical transformation driven by technology and industrialization. The young queen paved the way for a generation of women to assume prominent roles in every area of British society.
Empire of Good Intentions
(circa 1830 - circa 1925)
As the ruler of the largest empire the world had ever seen, Britain hoped to deliver "civilization" while saving its subjects from famine and disease. But from Ireland to India, this noble purpose dissolved ina morass of blood, grief and broken promises.
The Two Winstons
A HISTORY OF BRITAIN: THE COMPLETE COLLECTION concludes with a comparison of two of the most influential 20th century Britons - George Orwell and Winston Churchill. Schama's compelling analysis of their lives and legacies illuminates fundamental questions surrounding the role of history in society.
