great format throughout this mini-series
11 May 2003 | by (Oxford, England) – See all my reviews

To be honest I loved it! Okay, Anne Robinson was not a good presenter for this series. But who cares! This alternative format to Channel 4's 100 greatest shows' format makes the audience informed of each of the top 100 Britons, by giving them a mini-biography of each contender in the count down. This is quite educational and is a welcome alternative to those 100 greatest TV shows on Channel 4. Also, the people discussing why a certain Briton, like Brunel or Churchill, should be number 1 was also interesting! But I only watched the John Lennon programme, which gave good insight to his life. Overall, a great format throughout this mini-series!
