4.0 out of 5 stars Clever compilation of captial-city documentaries, 29 July 2014

(HALL OF FAME REVIEWER)    (TOP 50 REVIEWER)   
This review is from: History of London [DVD] (DVD)
This is an interesting anthology of several different TV documentaries, all with the central (but flexible) theme of London's history which stretches to encompass an awful lot of architecture -- old buildings of note, new buildings as they are created, lost buildings which have vanished over the centuries. The importance of the Thames and how it affected the development of the city forms the focus of a couple of the programmes.
These programmes aren't from one coherent planned series, so there's a fair degree of overlap and repetition between them -- but we also get different viewpoints on the same situation from the different historians and presenters. The style of some of the presenters may not please everyone (OK, I prefer Dan Cruickshank to Suggs...) but the content is varied, accessible and informative.

It's a neat collection. Lots of viewing in one inexpensive bundle. I doubt there will be any great surprises for people who already know the background to London's rise and sprawl, but there's lots of interesting snippets.
7/10
