And it takes for ever to make a point of interest.
Generally there is some historical information but its not worth the money.
What can be said in its favour? Not very much, I fear. The coverage is much too superficial, but I suppose that is only to be expected in a series of six 50-minute programmes dealing with over a thousand years of Roman history. The material, as far as I can judge, is broadly accurate, and most of the chief players are given a mention. The broad brushstrokes, too, provide something of an overview of the period under consideration, and might whet the appetite of some viewers to discover more, but this is possible only with a firm commitment to book-work which, for some, may be more of a chore than a pleasure.
I picked up my set of DVDs for less than £10.00, which works out little more than £1.Read more ›
To call this series tripe is very strange to me. I thought I knew quite a bit about Ancient Rome but I certainly learned a lot from it.
So there is quite a bit of black and white footage, obviously from old films. So what?
Incidentally, the colour footage of Roman soldiers isn't real, you know!
This is a first-rate DVD set and well worth the money (although perhaps not to milk chocolate-befuddled brains).
