An inspiring insight from a new point of view
on 29 April 2012
Paxman has taken an interesting approach in order to discover the British Empire from a variety of perspectives and thus trying to highlight the ideals, power relations and the forms of organisation at work to both cretae and control such a vast territory. Travelling to a number of places himself, he interviews the descendants of those that still experienced British rule themselves, while interspercing today's points of view with tales about certain historical events that were decisive in the rise and fall of British rule. A DVD that is both informative and entertaining!
