David Starkey is the sort of man who divides opinion because of his opinions. I suppose far better that than something else.
If you enjoy his style and delivery (or at the least, can put up with it), this is a treasure-trove of information. I enjoy reading his books, and the programmes are neatly made. The 'dramatisations', much as they are, do not distract or interfere with the delivery of the material.
Heartily recommended to the armchair historian, or for those looking for a starting place for study.
PS Would be much happier if they'd included the Edward & Mary programme alongside this.
