But what is it? And why is it so significant? This documentary is a fascinating and insightful journey back to the time of King Alfred and later King John and traces the conditions that led to the signing of the Magna Carta - the Law of laws. It also includes clear explanations of the people and social conditions that formed the basis of modern English democracy and justice.
