EMPIREThe grand story of the rise and fall of the British Empire


How did a relatively small island come to rule over a quarter of the world's population? From the arrival of the earliest explorers, through colonization, to the final lowering of the Union Jack, this five-part series examines the multilayered and violent history of British imperialism, the impact that England's empire had on native peoples around the world and on its own citizens, and how it continues to exert influence today. Shot on location in India, the Middle East, Canada, Africa, the Caribbean, and Singapore, the documentary travels to the outposts of an empire that was four times larger than ancient Rome's. Hosted by Jeremy Paxman. Grades 9 and up. English SDH subtitles. Color and black-and-white. Approximately 300 minutes. BBC. ©2012.
