From the Magna Carta to the Falklands, 10 years that made Britain - for better and for worse

Real Britannia Summary

Real Britannia: Our Ten Proudest Years - The Glory and the Spin by Colin Brown

1215: The Magna Carta. 1415: Henry V. 1588: Defeat of the Spanish Armada. 1688: The Bill of Rights. 1815: Waterloo. 1833: Abolition of the slave trade. 1928: Women's suffrage. 1940: Dunkirk and Churchill's last stand. 1945: Creation of the welfare state. 1982: Falklands War. Was the longbow behind the victory at Agincourt, or was it just that the English are better in mud? Did Queen Elizabeth I know the Armada had capitulated when she drafted one of history's most inspiring speeches? Where did Wellington meet his Waterloo? Were the Falklands testament to Mrs Thatcher's steel or a grasping, imperial folly? Veteran political reporter Colin Brown - a true expert in spin - travels to the places where history was made to unearth what makes Britain great.
