Description

Making sense of the British Empire's legacy... through the stories of people who lived through it. 

Through six intimate conversations with a new generation of writers and historians - journalist Afua Hirsch tries to break through old cliches, and unpick the true legacy of this complicated and difficult inheritance. 

She speaks to leading figures in British culture today - from poet Benjamin Zephaniah to actress Diana Rigg, broadcaster Anita Rani to novelist Nadifa Mohamed - discovering vivid family stories of the people who made the Empire what it was. And she hears how its ripples continue to shape our lives, and sense of collective identity today: our attitudes and cultural values, the multicultural, multiracial population of the British Isles today, and the relationships that Britain has with other parts of the world.

Shocking

Listened to all the episodes in a row. Very informative but shocking. This is all new information to me.

Makes me wish I knew more about my history

I listened to this and realized that I was taught colonial history. I never made it a priority to understand the world from different perspectives. Well put together and very relatable.

Great podcast

Excellent personal stories that have been buried by both time as well as the potential shame if the people involved. As a student of history I am ashamed to say I didn't know that some of these things happened. Educate yourself and have a listen with an open mind.

Fantastic podcast series!

Such an engaging and informative podcast, telling the story of the British Empire through the lived experience of those that were colonised and the colonisers. The podcast also highlights how the British Empire has shaped modern Britain. Highly recommend!

Eye opening

The history of British colonialism, with its roots in a brutal, racist caste system of their own, is fascinating and eye-opening.
