The British is an ambitious and gripping series about the history of the British Isles from Stonehenge to World War Two, the Roman occupation to the discovery of penicillin. This 7-part series will be both popular and important, working for a wide audience – young and older. It’s designed for everyone: content-rich enough to satisfy the most passionate history buffs and dramatically exciting for a generation used to feature films and computer games. This is a new approach to the story of Britain: energetic and bold, modern, inclusive and, above all, surprising. A new kind of landmark television: adventurous and pleasurable, and packed with astonishing facts and new ideas. With energetic drama and a lightness of touch it makes the past feel ultra-modern. Touching on crime and punishment, poverty, transport, fashion, housing, childhood, journalism, manners and morals, the series brings the danger, action, struggle, heroism and adrenaline of Britain’s history to life.


For '
The British', I created storyboards for CGI and live action sequences across the entire series in pencil with digital colouring.
