This epic three-volume history explores life's grand themes through Britain's rich and colourful history. It looks at important concepts like the cyclical nature of power and analyses fascinating topics, for example the consequences of a civil war or what happens when a third of the population dies. It opens with the shaping of a nation and closes at the dawn of the 20th Century by asking what we can learn from our past.

Volume I, At the Edge of the World, covers the years 350-1603 whilst Volume 2, The British Wars, covers 1603-1776 and Volume 3, 1776 to 2000.

Simon Schama's sweeping history of Britain breathes life into our past centuries, vividly depicting exactly what life was like for our ancestors and how their experiences have shaped modern British culture and identity.

This boxed set contains abridged readings by Timothy West of all three volumes.

Have you always loved reading but sometimes find it hard to find the time? Thereís nothing quite like curling up with a good book but many of us canít do that as much as weíd like. We sacrifice this special time because we have so many other things to do each day. Itís a common problem and itís the reason why people on average are not reading as much as they once did. Audio books bring the story to life just as the storytellers of the past did. They allow you to experience the book in a whole new way; in the way the writer felt and heard it in their head. You can feel the emotion when you allow audio books to let the story come to life.
