1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible., 30 April 2014
My search for decent running headphones continues. These are shockingly bad, sound is tinny and quiet, flimsy plastic construction, and they fall out of your ears when running. What a scam.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This may be the greatest piece of television ever made. It is a true education.
It is an inspiration to see history examined with such intelligence and compassion – in a way we have never seen before. As a young man my perception of the history taught to us in school was always slightly cynical, but the way in which Oliver Stone have revealed the gargantuan amount of propaganda that has been fed to us over the years is breathtaking.

To the critics of the voice-over and the programme’s style, I really think they need to develop their attention spans – I have found Untold History to be mesmerising in its construction and presentation. Unfortunately it seems some of the audience has become dulled by too much 24 hour news programming that the pacing of a real historical documentary, much in the the ‘World at War’ style, is sadly lost on them. Is more MTV pop-history what they really want? Oliver Stone has not taken the easy route.

Everyone – this is what a real history lesson looks like so pay attention!
