Pretty good, could be better
on 1 June 2012
I thought that I would know just about everything in these few episodes, but was pleasantly surprised with some of the information provided.
Pretty educationally based throughout it does have some interesting content.
The production is not quite so hot. I did wonder from the outset why Kate Humble was involved at all and was left thinking the same afterwards.
Dr Helen Czerski is obviously more knowledgeable in this field and presents very well. I do think the entire documentary could have been done with just her.
I would have preferred more CGI to illustrate the points being described, rather than the two presenters travelling the world for a few seconds of a point.
Still, not the worst I have seen and most will probably learn something from it.
