Elizabethans: How Modern Britain was Forged

by Andrew Marr

In 1953, when HM The Queen ascended the throne, Britain was a very different place.

People wore hats and went to church. The memory of WWII lingered with continued food rationing. The Windrush generation had recently arrived.

And there was much debate about Britain’s status in the world.

In “Elizabethans”, Andrew Marr takes us on a fascinating – and entertaining – voyage through seven decades, with a cast of characters from across the country: politicians, artists, sports heroes, tech innovators and many more.

Through these modern Elizabethans, Marr brilliantly reconstructs a recent history of Britain and the state of the nation today.
