|Historian Simon Schama brings the modern history of Britain (and its former empire) to vibrant life in the third installment of this engagingly accessible series. Having covered the Paleolithic era on up, Schama brings his focus to the blossoming social crusades of the late 18th century and guides the viewer right through World War II. While the series is always informative, the real appeal of Schama's work is the way he allows his love of both history and Britain to shine through; his enthusiasm is contagious. Schama takes an almost anecdotal approach to history, illustrating his points with the juicy yet telling moments that so often get left out of history books. Though Schama's words are the main point, the visuals for A History of Britain III are also well done. The seamless blend of stills, archive footage, and reenactments adds both context and emotional punch. Highly recommended for history buffs, Anglophiles, and anyone who feels like brushing up on the last couple of centuries of British history. --Ali Davis|
