I really enjoyed this DVD. It is true that some of the the editing and presentation can be lacking at times, but overall it is well worth watching. In many ways it is the lack of 'slick' camera work and narration that gives the DVD its quality. Here you have people who know what they are talking about explaining the subject to the viewer in a calm way. I particularly like the use of Living Historians, the interview with one chap,Simon?, was very informative. Have ordered the next in the series. At this price it is bargain.
