This three-part series was the centrepiece of BBC Four's 2006 season exploring British folk music. Folk Britannia traces the evolution of folk music from the end of World War II up to the scene's latter-day revival.

The story is told by those who lived and shaped it - a stellar cast from every era that includes Bert Jansch, Peggy Seeger, Martin Carthy, Donovan, Davy Graham, Richard Thompson, Maddy Prior, Billy Bragg, Shane MacGowan, Beth Orton and Seth Lakeman.
