Propaganda 100%
3 September 2016 | by sonjieSee all my reviews

I sat through the entire series because I'm British and am interested in learning about the history of my country, and I want to keep an open mind and see it from as many different viewpoints as possible. That said, this series left me wondering who had commissioned it, and with what nefarious objective in mind.

It is well produced, in a technical and visual sense, and the narrator is excellent, but the series has clearly been sensationalised and dumbed down for today's supposedly attention-lacking audience, and interspersed with inane pro-British commentary from a ridiculous choice of wholly irrelevant celebrities.

It is also very selective in choosing to show only a few snippets of the history of Britain over the last 2000 years.

These points I could have forgiven though, if it weren't for the overall feeling of propaganda that the series is imbued with. From the start to the end, it feels like a Hitler Youth type propaganda message about how marvellous and superior the British are, and always have been.

In summary, this series is factually incomplete, ideologically distasteful and overwhelmingly disappointing.
