A snippet don’t miss this great series, if you are interested in History, its a great survey of the story of the British, refreshingly told by an academic with a career spent sharing his knowledge on TV for about 30 years. It is very entertaining and very engaging with the communities in the locations Michael Wood visits. The series has just started you can also see the Episodes on BBC IPlayer, here is the link to get you started
It is available on iPlayer for 4 weeks each episode. Put it on your planner well worth a peep. Here is a short clip/ trailer.
- See the great expert contributors well worth hearing and seeing!
- Expert advice on how to do history research in short videos such as How to Read a Rural Landscape or What’s in a Surname? interesting short for family historians especially. Good introductions.
A really good programme for getting people connecting with history and with the National Pageants that will unfold shortly with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee great time to broadcast it too.
Yes it is popular history and yes we need it and can enjoy it, dont miss if you can help it and please pass it on.
