Customer Reviews


Just the right pace to keep one's interest whilst allowing time to picture what's being described. Episode 2 brings Berlin to life. Subscribed to the rest of the series as a result.

Germany: Memories of a Nation

Another first class audio podcast series from the BBC. Neil MacGregor ('History of the World in 100 Objects') again shows his skills in narrating history in a way that keeps your attention and interest. His insights make this series totally absorbing and thought-provoking. Using objects, and telling a story around them, is now recognised as an excellent way to teach history to everyone, from children to mature adults with curious minds.

An entertaining way to bring your view of Germany up-to-date

Very much enjoyed these first three episodes, and (judging from these) this is possibly the first truly empathetic account I heard of Germany’s past.
Having grown up in Germany, it saddened me to find how many people from abroad appear to view Germans as cold, mindless ‘machines’. This podcast is a great way to set the outdated picture straight. Fantastic work as always from the BBC and British Museum, thank you very much!
