Event Details

Strangely hidden from view, the British Empire remains a subject of both shame and glorification. In his bestselling and award-winning book historian and Times journalist Sathnam Sanghera shows how our imperial past is everywhere: from how we live and think to the foundation of the NHS and even our response to the Covid-19 crisis. At a time of great division, when we are arguing about what it means to be British, Empireland is a groundbreaking revelation – a much-needed and enlightening portrait of contemporary British society, shining a light on everything that usually gets left unsaid.

‘Lucid but never simplistic, entertaining but never frivolous – Empireland takes a perfectly judged approach to it’s contentious but necessary subject.’ (Jonathan Coe)

This is a pre-recorded event which will be available from 9am on 25 September to 9pm on 31 January 2022.
