I completely agree with this review - especially the bit about making you want to go and visit some of these treasures. After the first few episodes I was motivated to do just that and had a very enjoyable visit to the British Museum (spent all day there) and, on another day, to the National Gallery. These visits then spurred me on to visit the British Library (Magna Carta, Lindisfarne Gospels and the Beatles original lyrics) and the National Portrait Gallery.
A great TV series which I'm sure will do much to improve tourism to our national treasures! This is what the BBC, in my opinion, is all about - quality and motivational education programmes whilst supporting and promoting our great country.
