This review is from: Simon Schama: A History of Britain - The Complete BBC Series [DVD] (DVD)
Of course, anything that tries to cram in so much history into 1 series is going to skimp on certain areas, but Schama picks out a superb choice of highlights, seeing life not through the eyes of royalty but also that of the ordinary person.
Very well produced and makes history come alive. His enthusiam and obvious knowledge only adds to it.
I thoroughly recommend this to a anyone, especially those with a love for history but no desire to plod through tired old history books. THIS is what a history series should be. The only comparable presenter and historian, in my experience, is Michael Wood.
