I enjoyed the show. The history is pretty much dead on, which is rare. The fact that they are cycling makes it interesting to watch and the fact that they aren't celebs means it's more about the history and the journey. A bit more accessible when normal people do these things.
Ant, Tarragona wasn't Roman when Hannibal marched by. At least get your facts right before having a go! Tarragona was Iberian when Hannibal passed it on his way to Italy. Publius Scipio and Gnaeus Cornelius Scipio Calvus (Africanus' father and Uncle) were on their way to Spain when they caught wind of Hannibal in southern France soon after he crossed the Rhone. It was only after this that first Gnaeus then Publius went to Tarragona and established a Roman presence there.
So as the show is about following Hannibal's Trail it seems fair enough that Tarragona didn't get a huge mention.
