The American Revolution

Sundays from 15th February, 8pm

Everyone knows the story of Paul Revere and his famous midnight ride to warn colonial forces of the British approach. However, history books don't tell of the man who sent Revere on his mission: Joseph Warren, America's least remembered founding father. The American Revolution uncovers the forgotten history of Warren and the stories of other unsung heroes who fought for independence. This three part series remembers the band of brothers who took on one of the most powerful empires in history, among them not just future presidents and founding fathers, but the unsung heroes of the revolution who fought in the name of liberty.
