Wonderful documentary
1 November 2009 | by (Latvia) – See all my reviews

This TV mini-series is not just educating, but also entertaining. In these series is revealed stories of the people and events, which has affected world greatly. Only concern I have is why overall user rating is so low. I can only guess that it's because of 4th episode about Vanunu. Each episode is generally dedicated to one personality, who had affected world greatly. These episodes are like biographic stories of five persons. These persons are not the best known scientists or Press faces, these are the ones who make history. Episodes are quite historically precious and actors are quite similar to their real-world personage. Usually i don't like documentaries, where actors are playing, but these series are totally different, and i can honestly say, that this stuff is must-see!
