This Sceptred Isle is a radio series written by historian Christopher Lee about the story of the lands and peoples of Britain by the British Broadcasting Corporation . It was produced by Pete Atkin and broadcast in 1995 twice each day–in the morning and late at night–on Radio 4 . The series comprised 216 episodes, each 12–14 minutes long, and had a total duration of 46 hours. A 29-hour-long abridged version of the programmes has been issued on CD as part of the BBC Radio Collection.

The programme's title is a quotation from Act 2, Scene 1 of William Shakespeare's play, King Richard II , attributed to John of Gaunt :

"This royal throne of kings, this scepter'd isle, This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars ... This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England ".
