Britain's Slave Trade: A Message From Our Ancestors | History Documentary | Reel Truth History

A Message From Our Ancestors looks at the Caribbean connections of modern Britons and follows some finding surprising facts about their family history.

This is the untold story of the greatest slaving nation in history. Up till now, Britain’s place in the history of slavery has been as the country that abolished the international slave trade.

Britain’s Slave Trade reveals the shameful truth behind this liberal facade, showing how the economic, social and cultural life of Britain would have been unrecognisable without slavery. Britain’s Slave Trade explains how a middling European power transformed itself into the ruler of the waves, tracing the impact this had on the British way of life and taking in the Industrial Revolution, the beginnings of Empire and the birth of modern racism along the way. It also unearths startling evidence showing how many families that think of themselves as ‘pure’ English stock are in fact descended from slave ancestors.

Chunks of King Sethis’ finely painted tomb fall to the floor and Western Egyptologists shrug their shoulders and blame floods and tourism. In this controversial feature-length documentary, agent provocateur John Romer travels to The Valley of the Kings. Once there, he sets about investigating a scandal in the history of conservation. As the programme unravels, he reveals how respected Egyptologists have contributed to the plunder and destruction of the monuments they profess to admire. Is their policy of ‘publish or perish’ a recipe for disaster or the only way to preserve the monuments for eternity?
