Almost half a century since Kenneth Clark’s original 1969 BBC television series Civilisation, the role of history in our society has profoundly changed, with a multiplicity of new stories, voices and perspectives emerging in how it is researched and told.

In this special event, David Olusoga, acclaimed historian and co-presenter of the BBC’s new TV series Civilisations, joins broadcaster and historian Dan Snow to discuss the question of who owns history, and the role of marginalised histories in reshaping a singular narrative of history with a pluralistic one.

Presented in collaboration with History Hit as part of the BBC Civilisations Festival.
