Following the horrors of the Second World War, culminating in the horrific bombing of Hiroshima and the onset of the Cold war, came the beginnings of popular culture: Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley and the Mini. Narrated by Anna Massey with Robert Powell, 'This Sceptred Isle: The Twentieth Century', is an authoritative, vivid and compelling account of one of the most exciting and fast-moving periodds in Britain's history
