A HISTORY OF MODERN BRITAIN Andrew Marr 2007
BBC – A History Of Modern Britain confronts head-on the victory of shopping over politics. It tells the story of how the great political visions, and rival idealisms, of a new Jerusalem or a second Elizabethan age came to be defeated by a culture of consumerism, celebrity and self-gratification.
This history follows all the political and economic stories, but deals too with comedy, cars, the war against homosexuals, Sixties anarchists, oil-me and punks, Margaret Thatcher’s wonderful good luck, political lies and the true heroes of British theatre.
