This was an amazing show! It was factual, engaging, beautiful to the eye, and a very quick 2 hours. I very much enjoyed that Loades didn't dress up in the various costumes for his presentation, but kept his clothes simple and understated, drawing far less attention to himself than his subject, allowing the viewer to see how history LOOKS. I also liked that he didn't dwell on the royalty and nobility, but got in and got his hands dirty with the ploughman and the castle masons. I have ALREADY recommended this video to many of my friends, and will continue to do so. It is an invaluable look at the high medieval period from all the various strata of society.

Just got thru watching the Third Reich Part 1 and 2 the Rise and the Fall. This has to be the best documentary I have ever seen of the war taken from a German perspective and how one man could take a nation down to destruction. This should be required viewing for every student in school. I have seen many documentaries on World War II but none that came at it from the perspective of the German people. Thank you history channel for producing a excellent documentary

This is for item # 180 - the devils graveyards. I watched it and must have missed the first part that said it was a fake and a load of BS based on a tales of the weird and psychotic document from 1972 but portrayed as real and happening in 2013/2014.

The film started off with a scientist's son killed by the family dog - complete with blurred/jumping found video type filming of the event (showed at least 4 times during the episode). The scientist is then in pursuit of the truth about what happened to his son and the episode plays like a documentary.

As the film progressed it started to seem more like an episode of Star Gate SG1. Don't get me wrong, I like Star Gate SG1 but I believe it should stay Sci Fi and not be presented as a history special. Essentially Space Aliens bombarded the Earth with energy to release a radioactive metal that is responsible for dead zones and mystery - i.e. Bermuda triangle and other places of mystery. According the episode Nazi's were aware and highly interested in developing this flux as a weapon but were mysteriously destroyed/killed in the process.

The grieving father has now discovered the area where his son was killed was a North Africa version of the Bermuda Triangle (cue strange music). There are 12 triangular zones in all (geometrically spaced across the Earth) including one that was neutralized by Hawaii by nuclear bomb testing. The scientist has collected core soil samples and thus has proof that all the areas except the zone neutralized by Hawaii contains the rare radioactive metal. He now has the top soil removed in the N Africa area and while the History special documenter is there they see it has been placed in a grid pattern similar to old photos from the massively destroyed pole area Nazi site.

As a medieval enthusiast, I'm well acquainted with Mike Loades' work. Once again he creates a program that is both informative and entertaining. Well suited for both the hard core medievalist and the average viewer, Going Medieval is worth your time.

This is the best documentary I have ever seen. It takes you from the Big Bang to today and shows how the physics and geology of the universe led to the rise of human civilization. It is truely an amazing video!

I'm actually ashamed of history channel for making this complete piece of crap. A 1/2 second disclaimer at the end says it is fiction but through the whole show the play it off as real. Very bad science fiction with a survival" mentality. Especially grating is the load mouth supposed to be electrical engineer who needs to go back to stuffing envelopes. All the acting is bad but to make it worse they pass it off as real and it's a stupid lie. Zero stars really. ...yuk

This is a comprehensive overview of the Medieval period, approved by my significant other who is a graduate student in history. The quality was fantastic, we watched it on our flat screen in high quality with no pixelation or sound issues. I highly recommend this video!

This video was fast-paced, enjoyable, and enlightening. Mike Loades is both a knowledgeable historian and a very good story teller. It makes a good combination--there is no "lecturing." It's not about obscure dates, politics, and royal geneaologies. He shows you what he is talking about, whether it's hand-to-hand combat, building a real live castle, or washing clothes. He dispels myths and builds understanding of what it would be like if you were to be transported back in time to medieval Britain. It might not be what you expect.
