Battle for Britain's Heroes

Afua Hirsch questions whether some of Britain's historic heroes truly deserve their exalted status and meets opposition when she explores the racist views of the likes of Horatio Nelson and Winston Churchill in Battle for Britain’s Heroes. Alfa Hirsch explores if Britain can be honest with its imperialist past, and come to terms with how the legacy of its greatest heroes are affected.
