5.0 out of 5 stars This is one of the best yet! 23 April 2014

I just love this series and find it very, very interesting (even though I am unaware of who most of these Brits really are!). I am American and have only recognized a handful of the chosen celebrities in this (and past) series i.e. Jeremy Irons, Jerry Springer, J.K. Rowlings (or those who have made it in some way, shape or form, on the other side of the pond). I have already seen series 1 - 7 and this series eight is especially good. Anyone who is interested in history or finding out about their own family history will find this series worth watching and entertaining. By the way, in my opinion the British version is much better than the American--don't tell any of my compatriots in the USA though!

If you enjoy watching the series on tv and missed these celebrities, then get this set. They are well worth watching and clearly spoken.

As with all other UK series, it is excellent, regardless of whether I know who the famous people are.
Some are more interesting than others, only natural.
