Summary Presented by Jeremy Paxman, this five-part series examines the history of the British Empire. Tonight's episode describes the growth of a peculiarly British type of hero: the adventurer, gentleman and amateur sportsman - and a peculiarly British type of obsession: sport. Britain spread the gospel of sport through its public schools and throughout the empire, laying the foundations for almost all the major sports of today.
