Andrew Marr’s ‘History of the World’

The series has not finished yet, but I would just like to point out how I would summarize it thus far:

aside the omissions and inaccuracies, it’s all been quite good

Which is as truthful an overview as I can give. Clearly, he has decided to simplify a lot of the content he is providing, intending to introduce people to the history instead of explaining it. I am not sure if I am entirely in favour of such an approach, but it does have the merits of looking into more questions and topics.

I will write more once I’ve seen the final episode that will be around next Sunday.
