In "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," Wood weaves compelling local narratives that shed light on the nation's larger story. 5 3/4 hrs. total on two discs. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital stereo; Subtitles: English (SDH).
