While the series itself is well done, with excellent filming and occasionally some new facts revealed, the biggest drawback for me is the choice of narrator.

We've tried to figure out whether it's because he over-emphasizes virtually every word, or because his voice has quite a high pitch compared to other narrators, or whether his delivery is more suited to Blue Peter presenters. Whatever it is, I find myself switching off after the first minute and have to apply extra concentration to absorb any of the interesting information while trying to filter out its delivery. Generally I fail. Which is a shame, because as I said the series itself is essentially well done.
