Synopsis by Sean Hurley
From the BBC and Time Life, the Europe the Mighty Continent series explores the immense changes that have taken place on the European continent over the last century. This rich history is given voice by Peter Ustinov and historian John Terrine. This program explores the forces of nationalism, industrialization, socialism, and empire in a pre-WWI Europe. The program also examines the intellectual milieu that would give rise to the notions of communism, anarchism, and the female suffrage movement that would become so important in the years following the war.
