My Mother and I both loved this series. It is very informative but the camera work can be a bit repetitive. However, we couldn't get enough, so it's definitely worth watching.
P.S. we also fell in love with Neil Oliver's hair (it's glorious)

Beautiful landscape and history told in compelling fashion. I want hair like Neal's always blowing in the Scottish breeze. The two bonus, hour long features on Ireland history where quite informative and interesting as well even if they were a bit anti-pagan.

WoW! This series is both intriguing and addictive. I knew hardly anything about Scottish History so when I watched it I had all my historical cracks filled in and more. It covers the eras before the formation of Scotland as a nation to modern day Scotland.
