An excellent boxed set.
Andrew Marr is quite an interesting guy..and although his loud tone at times can be a bit irritating..he is very good at what he seems to do..keep the audience interested in the subject matter.
For the rather inexpensive price of this DVD set..you are getting 11 hours of modern history of Britain (6 hours of British political history from 1900-1945 & 5 hours of post WW2 British history...so totaling 11 hours of SUBSTANCE material of modern British history.....not "fluffy" at all.)
Also, there are 3 hours more of "Britain from Above"..which is in itself extremely interesting to view and its content on how Britain operates and some more of its history. and then 3 more hours of "Darwins Dangerous Idea". (I am not too big a fan of this particular subject matter..so i will not say much on this DVD..as i didnt bother to watch mutch of it)
Britain from Above: Tells the story of Britain's changing physical landscape over the years but viewed from the air. Very fascinating viewing!
History of Modern Britain: Recalls the events that have shaped British life since the end of the Second World War. Included is an account of the evolution of Britain's place in the world since the war and the collapse of Empire. Very interesting!
The Making of Modern Britain: An entertaining and witty overview of the dramas of the Edwardian age, the 1920's and 1030's, the effects of the two devastating wars, the General Strikes and the days of the music halls. So entertaining!
Darwin's Dangerous Idea: this is like reading a scientific or political/social magazine. He explains how, apart from the the impact of the the idea of evolution by natural selection had on society, how this idea was misappropriated and used to justify slavery and the slaughter of World War One and how Hitler used the idea to validate his idea of an Arian race. Andrew Marr then explains how pervading the influence still is - eg environmental concerns.etc.
Most enjoyable and informative DVDs.
