Simon Schama explores the enduring and powerful legacy of the Romantics on our modern world. Popular revolt. Our obsession with the self. Modern nationalism. These very contemporary ideas were actually the creation of the Romantics, a generation of writers and artists living and working over 200 years ago. In this series, Simon Schama reveals how these ideas, forged during a century-long revolution in art and culture, still impact our lives today. Featuring contributions from Sir David Attenborough, Pete Doherty and Piotr Anderszewski among others.
