Very interesting...
29 October 2005 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Terry Jones, tells the public how the myths really were. That Robin H. wasn't as nice as he seemed to be, and that history is really told by the winner.

He has taken the python-esquire way of display, and it works out great. The graphics the humor and the sometimes very detailed look at things that happened.

Every program consists of one subject which will be analyzed and put against the way of life today.... No, not much change if you watch carefully.

If you are interested in history, but you don't want to be lectured, than this is a series for you!

Would be great BTW, if Terry Jones took a look at the rest of Europe/the world this way :)
