A History of the World (BBC) - Alfred the Great

Post by GOK »

Anyone see it? Pretty pants throughout really but the real icing on the cake was 20 minutes in when the presenter declared that Alfred took "The Roman city of London in 1886" :o

Bet Victoria wasn't at all amused by that!

Yep - good to see he's still around. I met him at my very first event back in the late 80s and being terrified of messing up (I'd heard he was a real stickler)! He proved to be a really nice guy! :)

I wonder what he thought of that programme though!
