TV watchBBC World's weekend programming has always been extraordinary in terms of information presentation and production values. Another excellent series has begun, titled The History of Britain, a 15-part series. Not sure where I joined in, but I can tell it is somewhere early going by the last two episodes. They were about Beckett & the murder in the cathedral, Magna Carta, Richard the Lionheart, the Bruces of Scotland and the Welsh struggle. Well presented by historian Simon Schama.
