Why do documentary makers have to include constant music and even play it over the narration? Also, this has pointless dramatizations to illustrate battles, or somebody being killed etc. Worst of all is another lightweight presenter- why does she have to be in every shot, it's not as if she's attractive to look at, these days they seem to pick women who are just the opposite. She shows us the arch of Constantine but does not even mention almost all the carving was taken from the monuments of earlier Emperors . Constantine even had his own face carved over that of Trajan's, she probably did not know. Content OK but presentation rather dumbed down as usual.
