    well… documentary film making doesnt get much better than this does it? Simply phenomenal cinematography, research and story telling! Amazing that they could pack so much information into a single hour in such an entertaining way. I would definitely like to see more episodes in this series….

    Wow. Such rich content in this one. I have thoroughly enjoyed it (only took me three days to get through :) ) Can’t wait to find some time to enjoy Volume 2.
