The Battle for Britain’s Heroes

Channel 4, 29 May 2018, 9pm

We’ve erected statues to the heroic figures in our history and worship them almost like Saints. But in this programme, the writer and journalist Afua Hirsch calls time on this version of British history. She believes we need to question the uncomfortable aspects of our heroes.
