Lots of noise "effects" . Limited content.
22 December 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I wish someday TV producers would assume their viewers might just possess an educational level past the grade 5 level.

There is indeed some basic value to the content of Big History. But, shamefully, it seems written for children. Why is the sound background so unimaginative and overbearing ? The loud and "fancy" sound effects only disrupt the viewing experience. Despite any interest I might have in the material, I have to switch to other channels.

You might perhaps learn from PBS documentaries how to properly present a subject.

I don't expect the same quality as PBS from you, but, at the very least please have the decency of respecting your viewers intelligence.
