    I have never gotten so sick of seeing a producer's face in my life. This isn't about Ancient Britain; it's about Neil Oliver. His face is in almost every shot, his words in almost every soundbite, and very little time is given to the experts who know something on this topic.

    It is a producer's love fest to himself. We don't see the historic sites; we see a montage of shots of Neil Oliver walking through the sites. His commentary itself is not illuminating, but instead his observations mainly take the form of reacting to various objects he encounters. For example, when Neolithic arrowheads are shown, rather than something we could take away from the experience, Oliver goes off talking about how to him they are beautiful. Yes, that's all very nice, but there's no way I'm investing several hours trying to learn the history of Britain and coming away knowing that he found a certain ancient object beautiful or an historical site thrilling.

    Please, Neil, it's not all about you.

    This series is brilliant. It moved me in many ways. I greatly appreciate the series and the information it contains. As it awakens and stirs the cell memories within. I really don't mind how many times Neil Oliver appears as it is his passions and information that makes it a great series. Many thanks to all whom contributed. There are things said and unsaid, the collective consciousness still resonates strongly. I make big crystal circles (and stone circles) because my heart wants to and when I watch these series I can feel the confirmation that there is a deep meaning behind it all. Thank you. I have not had the opportunity yet to walk Britain, Wales, Scotland and Ireland in this life yet when I watch these series I so long for it. Sincerely thank you.
