The Robshaw family are experienced time travellers - but this time they are going further back than they've ever been before - to the turn of the 20th century, to discover how the food we ate and the way we ate it, helped shape the modern family. An ordinary house in South London will be their time machine, transporting them through five decades and two world wars. Guided by presenters Giles Coren and social historian Polly Russell they'll trace the incredible changes to Britain's diet and the extraordinary social transformation they reveal. The family discover a very surprising decade of progress and optimism as they journey through the 1930s. Gone is all the starch formality of previous decades. Their larder is now stuffed with familiar brands and snacks and deliciously healthy dinners too, even if they are made in a pressure cooker that looks more like an unexploded bomb than a bit of kitchen equipment. Along the way Brandon and Rochelle take a trip out for dinner and a dance in their very first family car, there's popcorn to go with their own home cinema, but the family's old servant Debbie finds out that the 1930s bring hard times for working women like her. As the Robshaws taste the food, wine and hope of a very progressive era, the threats on the horizon come closer with a visit to London's East End to commemorate the battle of Cable Street and all the traditional favourites of a Jewish dinner with Giles. But as 1939 comes around their hopes for the future are dashed as their final party is interrupted by an historic radio announcement.

In the last of these three programs, Andrew Marr looks at the defining moments of The Queen's reign, beginning with her accession to the throne in 1952 and her Coronation sixteen months later.

And - for the first time - all of The Queen's adult grandchildren have their say about 'The Diamond Queen'.

Simon Schama looks at how after the Protestant Reformation, the nation was bitterly divided along religious lines - a fault-line which ran through Shakespeare's own family. In what is believed to be his first play, Henry VI, Shakespeare began to explore English history and the English character in a new and unprecedented way. Shakespeare's England wasn't just a place where kings and queens strutted and preened. In Henry VI English men and women took centre stage with breathtaking boldness. This England explores the democratic vision that Shakespeare expanded upon in his masterpiece: Henry IV. In Henry IV England was presented in glorious technicolour; country squires and common prostitutes, kings and cutpurses. And in the ironic and irreverent character of Sir John Falstaff Shakespeare created an embodiment of Englishness; a character that transfixed Elizabethan audiences and still moves and entertains us today.
