Very good, quick revision

This is an excellent overview for anyone who wants a summary of key events into which they can slot all the details they might have learned previously.

It strikes a good balance between creating a coherent narrative but still including surprisingly comprehensive information for such a short recording.

It's also a very fair price.

More of these "history in an hour" productions would be very welcome!
