The Story of England

I've been really enjoying "The story of England" with Michael Wood the last few weeks - if you've missed it I would definitely look out for repeats or go on iplayer.  It is great to see a history program that gives you a real idea of how your own life might have been if you'd been alive a few hundred years ago.

It's also nice to see that mass movement politics was there going back to the 12th century. it gives a bigger perspective on modern politics and the struggle for equality.
