Interesting but second rate recap of historical events.
This documentary selects interesting and important moments in world history and then provides minute by minute narratives and recreations of what occurred. However there is very little real insight on the part of the filmmakers as they provide no follow-up commentary and make frequent historical errors. As one example... In the segment about the resignation of Richard Nixon, they repeatedly mention special prosecutor Leon Jaworski... problem is, every time they do they feature a clip of Sam Ervin chair of the Senate Watergate Committee.
While the minute by minute retelling of history can be fascinating, every episode that deals with events that I'm NOT already familiar with make me wonder how inaccurate they are as well.
