29/12/2017

Fall of Eagles

is a 13-part British television drama aired by the BBC in 1974. The series was created by John Elliot and produced by Stuart Burge. The series portrays historical events from 1848 to 1918, dealing with the ruling dynasties of Austria-Hungary (the Habsburgs), Germany (the Hohenzollerns), and Russia (the Romanovs).

The series tells the story of the final decades of three great empires brought to an inevitable demise by history, each of which used an eagle in their heraldry. The central theme is the effect of centuries of despotism, where a continual lack of social reform, and the devastating effect of World War I caused the clouds of revolution to start forming.[1] It commences in the aftermath of the Revolutions of 1848 and continues to the Armistice of 11 November 1918, covering about 70 years of history in 13 episodes
