An Imperial story in 13 parts.

The Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria in 1897 was the high noon of the British Empire - an Empire 91 times the area of the mother country, a quarter of the earth's surface.
Watching the great military procession through London, crowds cheered the 'Soldiers of the Queen' who had fought 70 Colonial wars during the 60 years of Victoria's reign.

"If only history could have been taught like this at school." (The Sun)
"I know that I laughed and I cried and that chiefly the pride kept swelling in my breast." (The Times)

Folk - Showbiz - Art
In the 70 years it's been around, jazz has been all three. It grew out of the New Orleans community, became an entertainment commodity and finally produced an uncompromising avant-garde.
From time to time cameras have been on hand for a moment of jazz history: in 1929, for example, when Duke Ellington's band was supplying 'jungle music' at the Cotton Club, and in 1932, when Louis Armstrong dressed up and gave an astonishing performance. A 1948 film promoted the Dizzy Gillespie big band, and the legendary Charlie Parker made one brief appearance on celluloid.
These and other historic examples have been combined with new material to trace the rapid evolution of jazz and sketch in the social background.

Commentary spoken by Alan Dobie
"Bouncy, beaty, biting way to tell history" (Daily Mirror)
"A splendidly researched and composed essay" (Listener)
"The best documentary on jazz ever screened" (Melody Maker)
"A brilliant documentary film by any standard" (Sunday Telegraph)
Written by Charles Fox, Geoffrey Haydon
