Presentation lets it down
27 February 2020 | by timlittleSee all my reviews

A lot of the information and footage is interesting, though not particularly revealing to people who have a basic knowledge of naval warfare through the ages. The interviews are generally good in setting the scene and context. The problem with this series (and others) is the presentation and, more specifically, the presenter - who seems to have made it his mission to get onto television as much as humanly possible. Robert Bells' over-dramatic, over-emphasised delivery, paired with bug eyes, dynamic eyebrow movements and arm waving soon become an irritating distraction. It seems to have become a style of documentary that has become popular - as much about the presenter as the content. I found the programmes more enjoyable the less I saw of Bell.
