There will always be controversy over the interpretation of history but what Neil Oliver and the researchers have achieved is to provide an account of pertinent events which explains how and why Scotland has developed the way it has.
From a technical perspective the image quality on the blu-ray disk set is breathtaking, indeed stunning especially as the camera flows over the land and water with aerial footage.
Even if one is not especially keen on history I believe there is enough gripping material to keep one keen interested throughout the 10 epsiodes.
A documentary set well worth purchasing. Enjoy.
The bonus documentary "How the Celts saved Britain" is also highly informative, but presenter Dan Snow of this two part serie is clearly no Neil Oliver who presents the History of Scotland with the right balance between wit, information, seriousness and fun !
For everyone out there who wants to know more about Scotland, look no further and buy this. It's absolutely great. I loved it.
Should be mandatory viewing for the English, they might eventually get the present Queen's title correct!
