The Elizabethans: How Modern Britain Was Forged

The Elizabethans: How Modern Britain Was Forged

When the Queen stepped up to receive her crown in 1953 at the age of twenty-five, Britain was a very different nation. Broadcaster Andrew Marr tells the story of modern Britain through the people who shaped it: from Sylvia Plath to Elvis Costello, Frank Critchlow to Bob Geldof, Zaha Hadid to James Dyson, David Attenborough to the Beatles. How did our activists, our innovators, our artists, our every-kind-of-mover-and-shaker define and progress this new Elizabethan era over the last seven decades? And how does that shape our understanding of what it means to be a Briton today?
