Britain had the biggest empire the world has ever known. At one time a quarter of the global land mass was British. Over a third of the world was insured at Lloyds. At his coronation, more than 400 million people saluted George V. Truly, the sun never set on this historical phenomenon. whatever the day, whatever the hour, somewhere on the globe, the empire worked and played the British game - often absurdly so. The story of the British Empire is one of enormous personalities, adventure, scientific and maritime development and the building of one of the most complex international administrations the world has ever seen. The series shows the history of exploration from the 16th century, but more importantly from the mid-18th century to the period shortly before the First world War.

This is a thoroughly enjoyable account of how the foundations of the British Empire stemmed - almost by chance - from the earliest English explorers. Juliet Stevenson is an excellent narrator and the result is informative and humorous. I will definitely be purchasing Volume 2 to learn more!
