BBC Radio 4's monumental history of Britain picks up the story of the British Empire at the point where the American colonies have become the United States of America with their triumph over General Cornwallis and the British army at Yorktown in 1781. Here, are the origins of the modern nations of Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and of the ways in which British influence has affected - for better or for worse - nations such as India, Sri Lanka, and China. Here are the stories - not always happy and glorious - of Captain James Cook, Mungo Park, Warren Hastings, Sir Stamford Raffles and David Livingstone.
