Advert Description

Oxfam Shop Scarborough At its peak the British Empire was the largest formal Empire the world has ever seen. Its power and influence extended to all four corners of the globe, incorporating diverse peoples and cultures who, for better or worse, were swept under the red, white, and blue banner of British rule. A tie-in to the 3-part ITV documentary of the same title, The British Empire in Colour brings this institution to life through rare and previously unpublished color photographs that render events more "real" to the modern reader, augmented by illuminating narrative and informative captions. From ex-patriots in the early 1900s attempting to create "Little Britain" in far-flung imperial outposts to the multi-cultural Britain of today, The British Empire in Colour provides an extraordinary insight into the events that have shaped modern Britain and determined its place in the world.
