4.0 out of 5 stars The Unprofessionals, 12 Oct. 2001
The Detectives, the height of mid-90's evening telelvision. Bob Powell and Jasper Carrott, not exactly the most natural pairing (an RSC trained Thespian, and a Brummie comedian, I ask you?), but nevertheless, it worked. The series was influenced by The Professionals, and it shows, but who cares? Certainly not I, as it is still a good video.

5.0 out of 5 stars Where's that 10th star when you want it?, 26 Aug. 2001
Like the man himself, where does one begin with a review of Hubris? Kershaw, sensibly, began with his antecedents and how his greatest stroke of luck came in 1876 when Alois Schicklegruber changed to Alois Hitler. The undeniable conclusion of Kershaw's "meisterwerk" is that Hitler was one of the most unwilling gamblers of the last century, but also one of the most successful and ruthless gamblers.
He writes with the sytle and vigour of a fiction; it certainly can be read leisurly, although I use that word advisedly, not like a traditional history book. It is ironical, witty and very harrowing, especially in the Night of the Long Knives. Like EP Thompson in The Making of the English Working Class, Kershaw emphasises the social impacts, but also attempts to answer why he was successful to a civilised, European race.
