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 5, covering the years 1979-1999, looks at the Thatcher years, the Falklands War and the greatest ever Royal Wedding. Beyond Britain Gorbachev was influencing world affairs and, back in the nation's capital, a dome is being built to celebrate the approaching millennium.
