Wonderful, but you need to concentrate,

This review is from: Simon Schama - A History of Britain : The Complete Series [DVD]  (DVD)
Just as with the book of the same name, Schama's marvelously poetic, yet ultra-compact use of the English language means a lot of information is crammed into the narrative. Watching these DVDs is a delight, but you really need to concentrate to get the most out of them. If you are prepared to do this, then the programmes undoubtedly offer one of the quickest ways to master English history.
