I gave up after several episodes. Slow, tedious presentations. Actors often bear but slight resemblance to historical figures they re-enact. Bad factual blunders. Calls Heinrich Himmler "Hermann Himmler" and Reinhard Heydrich "Richard Heydrich". Says Goebbels launched the Holocaust by instigating Kristallnacht; generally muddles sequence of 1938-39 events. States as proven fact that James Earl Ray shot M. L. King (King's family disagrees). Correctly blames Allied power Serbia for starting WW I. Conclusion: too much misinformation, avoid.

Why is this listed when I search for Richard II (Shakespear's play)
