In this program, experts explore the history of the British Isles from the ice age of 30,000 years ago to pre-Celtic times in search of evidence of the ancient Britons-the Neolithic "Dawn People. From Orkney to Wessex, their ancient societies left enough archaeological evidence to answer some questions-and to raise others.

Monuments and mysteries appear to be the chief legacies of those who dwelt during the dawn of civilization in ancient Britain

The Modern monarchs( Visual )

How has the importance of English royalty evolved over the past two centuries? This program examines the passage of the monarchy into figurehead status, tracing the line of descent from Queen Victoria to the current ruling family. Recounting Victoria's bereaved isolation and her son's rejection of her standards of propriety, the program reflects on English rule through two world wars, the Princess Diana tragedy, and the media circus that is now a feature of royal life. The episode concludes with an analysis of the crown's vague national purpose-ultimately recognizing an age-old interdependence between the monarchy and its subjects. (47 minutes)
