Clare Jackson is an exceptional presenter and the series beautifully written. This is history as if it happened only yesterday. Some surprising revelations. Indeed, to reinforce the many parallels with today (you remember the adage that failure to learn from the mistakes of history results in their repetition), there are many timely illustrations from more recent incidences. Music too dovetails well with the narration and the whole series is a typical BBC tour de force. In fact, a must-see.
Watch, and learn.
