Spears her targets every time
28 April 2018 | by PipAndSqueakSee all my reviews

Cunk, smart arse that she is, nevertheless learns along with us the real meanings of some of those mysterious places and events littering our history books. Asking facile questions of real historians is very revealing. We discover some who not only know their stuff but are also amused by Cunk's novel approach. More often than not though, we see some stuffed shirts getting quietly shirty over the lines of inquiry taken. We're sniggering in the back row over this skewering. Love it and Diane Morgan's portrayal of the ubiqitous walking talking history head we know from tv history progs.
