I wish 'History' were taught this way.
21 May 2011 | by RatanTataSee all my reviews

a) Amazing never seen visuals.

b) Powerful all engaging presentation.

c) A honest interest in the subject of India.

d) On location shooting of the narrative subject matter.

e) Great background score.

f) Balanced and well researched topics, which have lessons for world as a whole.

I can go on listing points of greatness of this great work. Wish Michael Wood was my history teacher! I would have definitely majored in History.

If you really want to experience 'time travel' don't watch science fiction movies... just watch this series, you will be amazed. Take my word for it.
