Making sense of modern Britain is a tough call. But the explanation, more often than not, lies in the British Empire.
Jeremy Paxman believes that unless the British come to terms with their Imperial past, they'll never understand who they are and where they're going today. In this five-part series, he cuts through the British national embarrassment, turning his forensic and unapologetic gaze on to this most compelling period of our history and tracing its far-reaching influence on the present.
