British historian Michael Wood hosts this six-part documentary series, whisking viewers through critical periods of English history through the clever device of reporting them in "real" time from the perspectives of those living in the village of Kibworth, Leicestershire. Episodes include "Romans to Normans," "Doomsday to Magna Carta," "The Great Famine and the Black Death," "Peasants' Revolt to Tudors," "Henry VIII to the Industrial Revolution," and "Victoria to the Present Day." 5 3/4 hrs. total on two discs. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital stereo; Subtitles: English (SDH).
