Lightweight. Don't waste your time.
20 January 2016 | by Bernie-56See all my reviews

"Roman Britain from the Air" is a not a quality documentary. It is lightweight and hardly worth spending an hour watching. The historical content is not particularly original leaving just the helicopter view to give interest - and it barely did that. Oddly there were often two helicopters. One with the presenters and a second to film the helicopter containing the presenters.

Saturation has been set too high in post-production giving a garish colour level.

I could have tolerated those shortcomings but for two others that had me crawling up the wall.

1. Christine Bleakley needs presentation training. She speaks well enough but can't keep her head still. It's all over the place like a rag doll. Christine, for heaven's sake keep your head in the one position...just talk straight to camera. This get wild nodding and wagging is distracting after a minute and there's 59 minutes to go.

2. An irritating, overused word these days is 'amazing'. It was pathetic to find so-called professionals using language no better than vapid teenage girls.

This documentary might be interesting for a young person with little knowledge of British history and who is easily "amazed". For anyone else I suggest giving it a miss.
