This four part documentary was aired in 1999 and has not been made available on DVD, commercial VHS or 4oD and consequently is very rare! I have the privilege of bringing it to you in this torrent. However there are some issues, firstly it is a VHSrip and of course has all the issues of that media including a slight flicker in places and some dulling of the sharpness and colour in other. Apart form this the sound is clear and the picture is actually pretty good throughout.
The Documentary charts the the causes and experiences of the British Empire, her soldiers and her people on the one hand, the Boers on the other and also the fate of many black people during the conflict. The documentary was accompanied by the book of the same name by Tabitha Jackson.
