Good On Historical Content
23 February 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I saw this documentary when it first aired on the BBC. I love history and thought this was as good and well constructed production as there had been.

I don't know why it's never been placed on DVD and available throughout the education system. The re-enact for example in the Watt Tyler section were really well done despite the fact that they didn't have enough money to have a city of marauding hordes.

One sequence that amused me was where Tyler is screaming in a barn or something inciting the rabble to march on the Tower... The actor gave it a large portion of effort, the guys in the crowed could have done with the same enthusiasm. Over all this is all content and fascinating and would love to get a copy of this.
