Summary

Historian Simon Schama continues his epic journey through time with a look at the 18th century. Renowned for being a period of economic growth that laid the foundations for the modern parliamentary state, it was also a time of uncertainty as the Jacobite claim to the throne threatened to undermine the progress of new forces in British society.
