David Dimbleby examines artefacts that reflect Britain's imperialist history during the 19th century, including a George IV jigsaw of the world and paintings of Cook's voyages. He travels to India to view buildings such as Government House and Howrah Station in Calcutta, which demonstrate the grandeur of the Raj, and studies items that show the darker side of empire-building.
