Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

Those who are written about by others tend to feel slighted as a result. It is, therefore, a pleasure to find out that the Discover Britain CD-ROM gives a reasonably rounded image of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland. The designers have used techniques such as video footage and a reasonable soundtrack to accompany the background information on history and culture provided for this popular destination.

One of the best historical sections is that on the prehistory of Britain. Here there are insights into the Celts and the Celtic language, as well as to important stone-age sites such as Stonehenge. Naturally, the designers cannot resist propagating a few popular stereotypes--there is a good graphic of the famous British cuppa and an entire section on the British royal family--but there are also passages on the modern university system which shy away from concentrating on the usual Oxbridge stereotype. The CD-ROM also includes a good and detailed guide to the major sites of London and to the interesting architecture of some parts of the capital.

All in all, this is a good package, giving both contemporary insights (such as the Open University system) and a reasonably complete picture of Britain's prehistoric origins. Visitors could do far worse than use this CD-ROM to expand their knowledge before exploring the land of cucumber sandwiches and the Notting Hill Carnival for themselves. --Toby Green
