5.0 out of 5 stars Nice Content and I Really Appreciate Mr. Dimbleby's Presentation, 29 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This documentary has BEAUTIFUL views of the inside and outside of Norman castles cathredals, other historical architecture (such as in Bath or Cambridge university)and beautiful countryside. It is substantive material and narration as well. The narrator, whom I ashamedly admit that I did not like the first time I watched this documentary , actually really grew on me after a few times of watching it. I preferred the style of documentary that did not show any "narrator" and was more , I guess you could say "Scientific" in its approach to presentation. I actually really began to appreciate Mr. Dimbleby's sense of humour and how he adds a nice sense of humour with a humanistic presentation. Enjoyed his style again and I really am very glad that this documentary was produced. I grade it a definite a +. and I am sure that in 20 years that people will appreciate it even more so.

Highly Recommend. And Hello to Mr. Dimbleby! I hope you are doing well and working on your next documentary!

2.0 out of 5 stars About as "Fluffy" as cotton candy, 29 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was way different than what i expeced. I expected scenes from different parts of Britain..maybe a bit of history to go along with it. Instead what i got was a guy named "David Dimbleby" who seems to like to be in the camera footage nearly ALL the time..and discussions on daffodils or obscure poets or might see him trying to paint some scenery...just plain awful.

I gave it two stars..because some of the scenery is definitely very nice...but it is ruined after a few seconds because of a guy named "David Dimbleby" AGAIN..wanting to be in the picture.

one other curious thing...where did all of these 5 star reviews come from? it is just plain awful..so surely something fishy here.

3.0 out of 5 stars would like it to be a bit longer ..but is quite good nevertheless, 27 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Terry Wogan's Ireland [DVD] (DVD)
it is a good 2 hour documentary..which gives the viewer a fair idea of what it is like in Ireland. The celebrity Terry Wogan seems like a nice guy..and i enjoyed his personality..but i wished that it was longer.

3.0 out of 5 stars 2.5 stars for a small "Appetiser" documentary on "The Dark Ages"., 23 Sept. 2012
This review is from: The Dark Ages [DVD] (DVD)
Enough to get you hungry for more....(around 90 minutes)..but leaves you there..and you are not left with many more options really..as nothing really much more on "the Dark Ages" as a documentary.

5.0 out of 5 stars This has to be the best documentary on World War 1., 15 Sept. 2012
I have watched other documentaries on both World War 1 and World War 2..and I think this has to be by far the best on World War 1..and i would even say that this is as good if not better than "World at War" for World War 2. ("World at War was very good..but this is equally as good if not better)

17 hours long roughly and every bit of it is great.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXTREMELY good content and great value, 13 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is extremely interesting series on modern history of Britain. It really hits on the big events of past century or so of British political/ historical events.
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)

5.0 out of 5 stars Scholarly Documentary on History of Ireland, 12 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Story of Ireland [DVD] (DVD)
This was really refreshing to watch..as it was seemingly very objective and scholarly. (not the biased history sometimes get over history of certain regions). The narrator seemed to be "non- ego-centric"..which was also refreshing..and was actually a nice choice. He didnt try to stand out in the way of the subject and kept a low profile..but still was good and nice to listen to.

4.0 out of 5 stars At first I didnt like it..but it grew on me..and was really liking it by a quarter of way through, 11 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
At first..i didn't like this documentary's format ..as it was different than what i had expected. I did not realise when purchased this DVD set that it would be centered on one town..Kibworth, England. However...as i watched it..i began to appreciate how it centered on one town mostly and was actually quite enjoying it half way through. It is very interesting . I rate it 4 stars instead of 5..as i think it would have been better if was longer and included more towns/cities than just one. I would have liked to have seen same format used for London, Newcastle,Brisol included with a small town too, such as Kibworth.
