Product description

( full title is " This Sceptred Isle 1087 to 1327 : The Making of the Nation ", by Christopher Lee , read by Anna Massey , Churchill extracts read by Paul Eddington , Additional readings by Paul Jenkins , Roger May, John Turner & Peter Yapp , Produced by Pete Atkin )

William the Conqueror famously acquired for himself the throne of England, but there were to be many struggles before truly national government would established.

Henry II, the first of the Plantagenets, did more than any of his predecessors to bring the country together, but his reign was overshadowed by the dramatic and tragic murder of Thomas Becket. Eventually, he was succeeded by his sons - Richard the Lion-Heart, followed by John.

This was a period of Crusades, of civil wars and wars between the English and the Scots, led by William "Brave-Heart" Wallace and Robert the Bruce ; but it also witnessed the setting of some primitive foundations that would eventually form the basis of a modern state : the Barons forcing King John to sign the Magna Carta, and the later calling of the first parliament, by Simon de Montfort.

Includes 24-page booklet, and fold-out chronology (see Photo Two).
Running time : approximately 3 hours.
