The best period dramas and films from around the world that we have never heard of.

We start with the British Invasion.

The American invasion of Europe.

The Cold War, which ended a couple of decades ago.

And the rise of the Internet, which gave us Netflix, Amazon, Hulu and other streaming services.

And of course, the end of the golden age of British comedy.

We also start with an Australian TV drama called The Last Great Train Robbery, starring Matthew Goode.

And we continue with some of the greatest period dramas of all time: The Sopranos, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Breaking Point, The Wire, The Soprairies, The Chronicles of Narnia and so on.

We end with a special feature on British television, where we talk to some of its most iconic stars, including Matthew Perry, Chris Morris and James Gatt.

You will learn about how they made their mark in the industry and how their characters became such a part of our lives.

Plus, you’ll get to know the people behind the stars of some of our favourite period dramas.

The Last Golden Age is out now on Amazon Prime.

The BBC has released a short film that features a cameo from actor and director Martin Freeman.

It was shot at the British Library in London.
