The Adventure of English (2003) is a British television series on the history of the English language. Presented by Melvyn Bragg in the form of an adventure story or a biography, as if English were a living being; it covers the history of the language from its modest beginnings around 500 AD as a minor guttural Germanic dialect to its rise as a truly established global language.
