This documentary, complete with dramatic re-enactments, was strictly second rate. The musical score was annoying repetitive and the entire factual content could have been presented in less than a quarter of the time. Instead everything was asked repeatedly, the same two "experts" were introduced over and over again and very little real content was covered.
It had plenty of places for commercial breaks and before and after each one recaps were presented. Overall it made for a repetitive, uninsightful documentary that was almost painful to sit through the first time.
I'm an inveterate repeat watcher of documentaries but this one will not make it into my repertory.
Far better has been done before.
