Entertaining history

This the last instalment of this BBC history series going from the roman invasion to the dawn of the 20th century. The series is informative and entertaining. Anna Massey is great as the narrator and makes it sound like a conversation.

Great way to fill gap in my knowledge

Although I've lived in the UK for over 25 years, I find I have major gaps in my knowledge of British history. This subject wasn't part of the curriculum when I was growing up in the Netherlands. The Sceptred Isle series is the perfect education on long car journey's. I recently had to drive to Paris and back and during the journey, I covered 60 years of history! I would recommend this to anybody who finds themselves wondering about when and where certain events happened.

Delightful!

Very well done history with dramatized vignettes of reading. I'll look for more from this series.
