It's been too quiet over here but I thought that would pique your interests!

Anyone care to share any recommendations?

The world at war from the 70s is a brilliant documentary. Obviously at the time many people were still alive to talk about their experiences.

If I could have more than one vote

The seven wonders of the Industrial age
and the more recent - Full Steam ahead also stand out.

In Search of The Dark Ages by Michael Wood has been released on DVD and I loved watching it again. I particularly liked the episode on Athelstan.
