Irritating presenter...dated 1980s youth television camera work...big let down, 26 Nov. 2010
I took a chance on buying this dvd as I missed the programmes when they were on television. Given that the subject matter includes some fine old buildings, you would think that it would be hard to get this series wrong - but they did.
The presenter is one of the most irritating people ever to present a television programme - he talks like some old spinster from a Victorian novel, and his neurotic hand gestures are irritating in the extreme.
The camara work uses 1980s 'yoof' television techniques of spinning round the Miss Havisham-style presenter, and leave you feeling nauseous.
Like I said, it should have been hard to get this programme wrong - but they did.
Don't waste your time and money.
