    "Delightful!"

    Very well done history with dramatized vignettes of reading. I'll look for more from this series.

    "Good introduction to British History"

    I got the Sceptred Isle histories in one of Audible's sales as I remember enjoying it very much when it was first broadcast on the BBC. They are an excellent introduction to the UK's history, and done in a style which keeps your interest. The only caveat I would make is that they are still very mcuh a radio programme and I think it would be quite difficult to listen to them one after the other. I listened to them two episodes (ie two 15 min episodes) at a when I was cooking in the evening and that worked perfectly for me.

    If you enjoy the recording, try Winston Churchill's history fo the english speaking peoples - also on audible - which are much quoted in the sceptred isle.

    "Great way to fill gap in my knowledge"

    Although I've lived in the UK for over 25 years, I find I have major gaps in my knowledge of British history. This subject wasn't part of the curriculum when I was growing up in the Netherlands. The Sceptred Isle series is the perfect education on long car journey's. I recently had to drive to Paris and back and during the journey, I covered 60 years of history! I would recommend this to anybody who finds themselves wondering about when and where certain events happened.
