Prohibition Series

Ken Burns brings the past alive again

(Edit) 03/07/2015

Another tour of the Americsn past, well argued and illustrated.

For English audiences the treatment may be overlong and detailed, and perhaps I would rate as three stars for those not seriously interested in the period or the issues.

As Time Goes By: Series 6

This series goes on charming

(Edit) 03/07/2015

But not quite as magical as the earlier seasons are. The actors carry the responsibility of sustaing our interest

Broadchurch: Series 1

Compelling viewing

(Edit) 06/01/2015

A compelling story bringing some scandi-noir elements to the English police procedural enriched by an emphasis on the impact on the community. Tennant and Coleman good leads with strong supporting cast.

Did not see this on tv but glad not to have frequent interruptions for itv advertising.

Heimat: A Chronicle of Germany

Still outstanding after thirty years

(Edit) 31/12/2014

Quirky, compelling saga of 60 years of German experience told through the lives of families in a rural village off the beaten track. The first half (covering 1920-1945) has remained vividly in the memory.
