Welkom bij de Romeinen 

Ancient history presented comically (at least, that's the intent) by interviewing with Caesar, Augustus, Ovidius and others in a modern style.

Storyline

''Welkom bij de Romeinen'', (English: "Meet the Romans''), is a sort of sequel to "Welcome in the (Dutch) Golden Age". Presenter interviews the key figures in Roman history, reporting on the past as if it was happening today. I've got five words for this and those are: The British Do This Better. Whether it's Monty Python (or the obscure Complete And Utter History), Blackadder, or Horrible Histories, all of them are better than this mediocre attempt to be funny. To be fair, although they also get a few facts completely wrong, on the whole it's informative for children. As said before, I just didn't like the humour; the constant cries of "Applause!" were pretty annoying also. Written by Spiny Norman

The British Did It Better
3 January 2016 | by UberhamsterSee all my reviews

Welcome bij de Romeinen, "Meet the Romans", is a sort of sequel to "Welcome in the (Dutch) Golden Age". A presenter interviews the key figures in Roman history, reporting on the past as if it was happening today. I've got five words for this and those are: The British Do This Better. Whether it's Monty Python (or the obscure Complete And Utter History), Blackadder, or Horrible Histories, all of them are better than this mediocre attempt to be funny.

To be fair, although they also get a few facts completely wrong, on the whole it's informative for children and it does a real attempt to liven up material that is (sadly) not popular. As said before, I just didn't like the humour; the constant cries of "Applause!" and laughing about your won jokes are pretty annoying also.
