Georgian Britain (1714-1811)by indeetee | created - 20 Mar 2014 | updated - 6 months ago | Public
Films & series set during a time of immense social change in Britain, with the beginnings of the Industrial Revolution which began the process of intensifying class divisions.
Seeing as British society was influenced on every level during this time by the wars with France, I'll also be including certain films/series from the French Revolution (1789-1799) and the Napoleonic Wars (1803-1815).
