Synopsis

On August 4, 2004, the people of Gibraltar celebrate three centuries of British rule.

Yet, this territory, one of the smallest in the world, has been at the center of a power struggle between two former colonial powers, Spain and the UK, which reached its climax in the late 1960s and mid-1980s and continues to this day.
