Awesome Stuff
21 April 2005 | by (West Chester, Pa) – See all my reviews

Peter and Dan Snow give a unique look at the great battles of Britain. The episode I happened to see was the Battle of Hastings in 1066. Through the use of mock battle scenes, interviews with actors, computerized minatures, site visits, and limited recreations and experiments, the hosts do about the best they could to make you feel part of the battle in one hour's time. I was absolutely floored. The only technique that I felt didn't work was to engage in some of the commentary while walking through (sometimes crowded) contemporary urban settings. I guess they did that to "bring the story home", but I thought it wasn't entirely effective and somewhat contrived. Otherwise a great neutral presentation, none of this Time/Sports Illustrated I-knew-what-was-going-to-happen-all-along post-mortem stuff. These guys flat out know their material and present it in a technologically advanced, enchanting fashion.
