Interesting history stories, but...
12 March 2020 | by jajksaus-54405See all my reviews

I just watched the episode about the sinking of the German battleship Bismark and was moderately dismayed at the background audio effects. Most of the time, when Morse Code was used as background, the message was SOS (distress call), repeated over and over. And the effect for radar scanning was actually the sound made by scanning with sonar. I'm generally a big fan of history documentaries, but getting the small details wrong makes me wonder if they got some of the big ones wrong, too.
