  • Surprising, informative and practical

    This exceptional BBC series should perhaps be titled “Great European Cities” since all eight episodes- so far- have been European cities. Overlooking both the more familiar Amsterdam and London, the producer includes Oslo and Budapest. The consistent format sounds dry - invite a prominent city historian to summarize a city’s history and offer a few tips for modern travelers- yet becomes rather entertaining and quite informative. more
