In this eight part series, Melvyn Bragg, explores the development of the English Language over the last 1500 years. The first four programmes explain how this insignificant German dialect has evolved into a global language now spoken and understood by more people than any other in the world. The remaining four programmes visit various countries around the world to show the differences in modern English. Written by

My husband had loved this series when it was on UK television. He had always wanted to see it again.
I was fortunate to start a language degree with the Open University (long-distance learning in England). This complete series (all 8 episodes) came on DVD as part of my course. My in-laws wanted a copy, so I looked around and discovered how hard it is to get hold of another copy!
I have found a website in Australia, who charge a very reasonable amount and do international shipping. The website is: www.devoteddvd.com Hope this helps everyone who are after the complete series. I highly recommend it!
