Written and presented by Andrew Marr, the story of Britain from 1900 to the end of the Second World War is vividly brought to life in this exciting new series. Andrew Marr's The Making of Modern Britain, released on DVD from 23rd November 2009 from 2entertain, paints a fascinating portrait of life in Britain during the first half of the twentieth century.

Between the death of Queen Victoria and the end of the Second World War, the nation was shaken by industrial unrest, dramatic technological progress, the birth of modern culture and apocalyptic world wars. The two wars were the worst Britain had ever known and the episodes of peace were also turbulent and surprising. As the political forum moved from Edwardian smoking rooms and country houses to an increasingly democratic Westminster and the streets, the people of Britain experimented with extreme ideas as they struggled to answer the question 'How should we live?'.

New obsessions such as flight, the motor car and eugenics were gripping the nation, while the popularity of music hall was gradually eclipsed by the cinema. Britain saw the birth of the modern media: tabloid newspapers, paperbacks, radio broadcasting. We also saw the dawning of the welfare state.

Beyond trenches, flappers and Spitfires, this is also a story of strange cults and economic madness, of revolutionaries and heroic inventors, sexual experiments and raucous stage heroines.
