Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A History of Ancient Britain - Series 1 [DVD] (DVD)
I loved this DVD, I bought it because I had also read the book. Neil Oliver is so passionate about his love for Britain and its past and both in the book and in the DVD this comes across so strongly that it is really stirring.
The only thing I found jarring was the interspersing of dramatic history with shots of modern people walking crowded streets; I can see the point he is trying to make, but I would have preferred not to have them.
The DVD made me want to get out and about in Britain and see these things for myself. The development of Britain geologically as an island, the way its weather variations, and 'invasions ' of peoples from Europe and farther afield have shaped us over millennia is beautifully told.
