Seven Ages Of Britain: Age Of Ambition
Age Of Ambition
Season 1  |  Episode 7  |  ABC  |  October 19, 2010

In the last episode of Seven Ages of Britain, David Dimbleby looks at how the 20th century saw ordinary Britons upturning ancient power structures and class hierarchies. The catalyst was the First World War, which embroiled the whole nation and called traditional values into question. The result was an ever-growing 'democratisation' of culture, with art coming off gallery walls, becoming an instrument of self-expression at the service of the individual.
