I remember this wonderful series from my childhood. It was, in fact, one of the very first things that kindled a love of history in me (and, in particular, that of Western Civilization). Now, it is certainly not without its faults. Indeed, many sorry and rather tired tropes are encountered here. That said, the host is charismatic, fluid, and engaging. The lover of history will find much to appreciate here. I thought I'd share them.
