Christopher Lee's history of Britain, This Sceptred Isle, provided the definitive radio account of the nation from the arrival of Julius Caesar to the death of Queen Victoria. This Sceptred Isle, The Twentieth Century, continues the story, taking us through decades of whirlwind change and technological advancement in the diverse and colourful country that now stands on the brink of the millennium.

Volume 4, covering the years 1959-1979, includes the erection of the Berlin Wall, putting the first man on the Moon, the Vietnam war and the astonishing success of a young man called Cassius Clay. Closer to home, the Beatles generated their own hysteria and Profumo caused a scandal.
