Bonkers but brilliant
20 June 2007 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Top work Mr Marr. Endearingly eccentric, enthusiastic, exhilarating overview of Britain. Of course there are gaps and highly debatable views, but he got all the top stories on the screen and reminded (hopefully) hundreds of thousands of people how we got to where we are. This is the sort of thing that makes history shimmer and excite - whetting the appetite for more in-depth explorations of each of the powerful stories that made up this wonderful series. I particularly enjoyed the episode that covered Harold Wilson - a time that i know little about but this programme made me want to dive into it and explore. And fragments of childhood memory came back to me during the episode on the 80s - my father's hulking mobile phone and the disappearance of my village bobby to go to the miners' strikes. Very evocative. Running over all of this was Marr's rich and engaging language - his presenting was the icing on the cake. Overall, Bonkers but brilliant.
